Great to be welcoming back REBECCA WRIGHT to Falkirk

Rebecca's original songs are complemented by a repertoire drawn from her experience of living in Scotland following exhaustive touring across Europe & her native Australia. Performing on vocals, guitar and cello, Rebecca is joined by the superbly talented DONALD McKAY on vocals, bodhran and Spanish 'requinto' guitar.

Thursday 23rd February welcomes LURACH to The Tolbooth Tavern.

Lurach are four superb musicians, Rachel Harris (flute, whistles, vocals), Naomi Harvey (Gaelic song, whistle), Lucy Macrae (fiddle, vocals) and Mharhi Baird (Scots song, tenor banjo, flute), who explore Gaelic & Scots song traditions and perform tunes gathered in both Scotland & Ireland.

They have built on their Danny Award success at Celtic Connections, performing at clubs and festivals across Scotland and hugely impressed the Falkirk audience at our Tryst Festival in 2011.

The result is vibrant, distinctive music; “a sparkling mix” of fiddle, dual flutes, tenor banjo, whistle and song.

Doors Open 8pm: £6 / £5 members

Another great night in prospect in the wee room this week,


Thursday 8th March
RACHEL & LILLIAS
The music of Rachel Newton and Lillias Kinsman-Blake draws on influences from the Highlands of Scotland to the Borders and beyond, incorporating both Gaelic and English songs with traditional and contemporary melodies. As members of popular folk band The Shee, they are taking the opportunity on this tour to perform as a duo, launching their debut album 'Dear Someone' on Fellside Recordings. A delight to be welcoming them to the intimate atmosphere at Falkirk.
