Several acts from Scotland, Skerryvore, Mànran and Calum Iain MacCorquodale & Malcolm Jones, will be performing Sunday, January 16th at 7:30pm at O2 ABC Glasgow.
Scotland’s finest young folk-rock outfit Skerryvore released their third, self-titled album to rave reviews in July 2010, winning yet more fans for their high-octane mix of soulful original songs and rousing traditional melodies, with bagpipes, fiddle and accordion powered by heavyweight rhythmic muscle.
Mànran is a mouthwatering new line-up of well-kent young talent – Norrie MacIver (guitar/vocals), Gary Innes (accordion), Ewen Henderson (fiddle/pipes), Calum Stewart (flutes/uilleann pipes), Ross Saunders (bass) and Scott Mackay (drums) – performing songs in Gaelic and English alongside fiery instrumental sets.
Completing the showcase of the Highlands and islands’ finest, renowned North Uist fiddler and accordionist Calum Iain MacCorquodale, a leading champion of older Gaelic playing styles, is joined by Runrig’s Malcolm Jones.
