South Uist’s Alana MacInnes joins Armagh’s Aoife Smyth alongside Colonsay’s Caitlin McNeill for an evening of piping and song. The trio celebrate their respective roots of Ireland and Scotland on border pipes, highland pipes, uillean pipes and a sprinkling of guitar.
ELÍR was formed in Glasgow’s vibrant and eclectic music scene in 2019. Featuring Niamh MacKaveney (vocals & fiddle), Charlie Stewart (fiddle) and Calum McIlroy (guitar), the trio have taken traditional songs from Scotland and Ireland and merged them with different musical styles to produce a unique sound.
Manx-based duo, Elizabeth Davidson-Blythe & Daniel Quayle, have forged a dramatic, compelling sound, blending the rich Manx tradition with global influences. Their travels have helped to shape their distinctive sound — blending old melodies with new rhythms and ideas with powerful conviction that continuously brings audiences to their feet.
