are a brand new young band from Northern Ireland. They have yet to tour the UK and Grayshott will be their first ever gig on the mainland. They may be a new band but they are all experienced musicians and a quick look at their website will tell you that they have already begun to gather up musical awards by the armful.
Their music has deep traditional roots as well as influences from across the globe. Their sensitive and innovative arrangements of traditional and modern folk songs and tunes have earned them praise across the folk community. Having met whilst studying Music at Ulster University, they quickly began performing together and developing friendships.
They hail from the cities of Armagh and Derry: Ciara McCafferty (vocals), Ciaran Carlin (whistles) and Paul Starrett (guitar) are familiar faces on the local music scene, and are joined by Armagh siblings Emer and Conor Mallon on harp and uilleann pipes.
We love traditional Irish Folk music at Grayshott Folk Club and we are delighted to introduce our audience to some newcomers who are starting to make big waves across the Irish Sea.
