Jenna Moynihan and Mairi Chaimbeul with Ella Munro
Fri 7 April 2017, 19:30 – 22:00 BST
An evening of fantastic music, with the beautiful voice of Skye's Ella Munro, BBC Radio Scotland Young Trad finalist in 2017 and Boston-based duo Jenna Moynihan & Mairi Chaimbeul.
Ella studies Scots song at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and is gaining fame as a solo artist. Ella’s passion for both traditional and contemporary music can be seen in her varied repertoire of scots songs by the likes of Dick Gaughan and Angus MacNaughton to her self-penned songs, rapidly gaining awareness in the folk scene. www.ellamunro.com
Rooted in traditional Scottish and Appalachian Old-Time music, Jenna and Màiri have developed a sound which celebrates and explores beautiful melodies. The pair met whilst studying at Berklee College of Music and are a product of the thriving and rich Boston music community. Jenna and Màiri have both been heavily steeped in tradition, but their music breathes new life into old tunes and merges their wide-ranging influences into a sound that is at once grounded and adventurous. www.jennaandmairi.com
