Fri 20 Sept  Georgia Lewis Trio

Exploring folk tales old and new, Georgia Lewis blends ballads of nature, love, loss and longing with great depth and passion. Nominated for the 2018 BBC Radio 2 Folk Horizon Award, winner of the Future of Young Folk Award, Ely Band Competition and Priddy’s, recently revived, Agility Mendip Stepping Competition, Georgia’s been “making a name for herself through really well received concerts” Julie Fowlis. Her debut album ‘The Bird Who Sings Freedom’ was described as “an impeccable British folk album” (Songlines) and received a glowing five-star review from Rock’n’Reel magazine. With her “delicately expressive voice” (fRoots), accordion and whistle she is joined onstage by Rowan Piggott (5-string fiddle) and Benjamin Trott (guitar). Described as having a “fine musicianship and authentic feel” (Living Trad) Georgia’s energy is hard to beat!

The Tannahill Weavers

The Tannahill Weavers are a band which performs traditional Scottish music. Releasing their first album in 1976, they became notable for being one of the first popular bands to incorporate the sound of the Great Highland Bagpipe in an ensemble setting, and in doing so helped to change the sound of Scottish traditional music. In 2011 the band were inducted into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame.

The band was formed in 1968 and practiced in a back room of the McKay family's rented council house at 41 St. Ninian's Road, Hunterhill, Paisley. The band first performed at St. Peter's Folk Club, Glenburn, Paisley which was run by Pat Doherty, father of Weavers' founding member Neil Doherty.

They are named after Scottish poet Robert Tannahill, known as the 'Weaver Poet,' and have recorded several of his songs.
