Niall O’Flaherty/ Stevie Smuith/ Taylor Buntain/ Glen Robertson / Ruaraidh Quinn
The Stumblers are a modern Scottish Folk Bandk, combining the revered ancestry of Celtic melodies with the lyrical substance of protest-era folk, sprinkled it with the classic instrumentation of gluegrass, and deliver it all with the passion and fire of punk rock.   Nothing can be written to accurately convey the reality of the band in full flow. Their debut album ‘Remarkably Simple For Complex Individuals’ is out now!

 

 

 

Footern’ Aboot – Buckie   – Listen Again 
Calum Jones /Lewis Wiles/ Macaulay Ross/ Rowan Duncan
‘We are Footerin’ Aboot. An up and coming young band of lively lads from Moray.
We perform a jumping upbeat set of traditional tunes, original songs and compositions and the odd popular cover given a celtic twist.  2016 has seen us perform at events such as Speyfest, Belladrum and the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festivals as well as weddings, functions and fundraisers from Grantown to the Black Isle. With Macaulay joining the band earlier this year our performance has moved to the next level and we hope 2017 will see us go onward and upward, perform at more festivals and events, release our debut single  and take our music further afield’.

11am Tartine de Clous   Appearing at Celtic Connections 2 Feb in The Glad Café 
Geoffroy Dudouit /Thomas Georget / Buillaume Maupin
Are a singing trio originally from the department of Charente in western France. Following in the footsteps of some of the great French groups of the late 20th century folk revival (such as Mélusine and La Bamboche), they sing largely unaccompanied three-part harmony arrangements of the traditional songs of their native land.
‘In the arrangements or in the sound, the debt to Melusine is obvious. We often sing their own arrangements, in concert. But if the sound of the French and English 70’s revival folk is a landmark, our ears bathe in the collecting. And as we prefer to sing around a table in a row of onions on a stage, we have preferred to the recording studio a systematic recording of our songs in “concert”, on the street, or even between us, when envy We took it. Recorded in places that sound, rather than in a studio where you would then apply effects. A record where you travel according to atmospheres and stories told rather than high-tech consistency.’
They will be joined by local musicians Neil McDermott (fiddle) and Alasdair Roberts (guitar).

 

 

12pm Bill Adair
As well as being a fine guitar player Bill Adair is one of Scotland’s busiest and most respected singer/songwriters. Combining influences from folk and blues, Bill’s music addresses universal themes of love, work, loss and redemption. He is equally at home singing a traditional Scottish ballad, playing blues from the Mississippi Delta or performing one of his own songs, and his performances are complemented by a natural story-telling style that is both thought-provoking and e rom his home near Glasgow, Bill is much in demand at festivals and folk clubs all over the UK and throughout Europe and New Zealand.  He is widely recognised as a renowned interpreter of the poems and songs of Robert Burns.  Born on the outskirts of Glasgow, Bill grew up in Lanarkshire in a family with strong musical leanings. His father played violin for the Scottish Concert Orchestra and his mother, although born in Patagonia, had a blood line that was 100% Welsh, so he grew up listening to the music of Mozart, Handel and Neil Gow and hearing traditional Welsh songs like Calon Lan and Ar Lan Y Mor. This diversity of music was such an in ntertaining. Bill has CD’s ‘Dusty Boots on a Gravel Road’ an stunning collaboration ‘Along The Minrers’ Rows

 

 

1pm Nathan Bell  Appearing at Celtic Connections on 2 Feb at Oran Mor 
Nathan Bell has lived life! ‘The wizened songwriter’s weary voice bleeds experience. He’s seen both sides of the coin—travelled the nomadic, bohemian path of the hard-luck troubadour, and found comfort and meaning in the stability of a family, a home and a near two-decade corporate gig. And now, with a guitar back in his hands where it should be, he’s ready to tell the tale. But it’s not just his own story he’s after. It’s a story of America, of the working classes—both blue and white collar’ He IS the Songwriter’s Songwriter, shared stages with the likes of legendary Townes Van Zandt . Has a ‘keen eye for detail, and an unapologetic penchant for the political, populist humanism of his literary heroes John Steinbeck, Jack London and Studs Terkel.’ Latest album ‘I Do This for Love’ (the third instalment in a potent trilogy that began with 2011’s Black Crow Blue and continued with 2014’s Blood Like a River), Bell has created a song cycle that is both moving and timely. As well as albums  ‘On Time , Not Dead’, ‘Only the Important Things’ and ‘Tailorland’

 

2pm Martha L Healy
Martha was raised on sounds of classic American artists – such as Bonnie Raitt, The Eagles, The Travelling Wilburys – staples of her family’s vinyl collection. She later became interested in female song-writers and country legends such as Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton and Sheryl Crow and felt inspired to take up the craft of writing, herself.  Her debut album, Better Days, was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, in 2014 with David Spicher producing and Music City’s best players appearing on the release. ​For her new EP, To Be Free, Martha was eager to replicate the live experience she first tasted at the infamous Sun Studio in 2013, with the Grammy-award winning producer/engineer, Matt Ross-Spang. This time, instead of taking the streetcar down Main Street in Memphis, she took the M77 into her native Glasgow, Scotland, and recorded an EP, entitled To Be Free, with Johnny Smillie at La Chunky Studio.  So far 2016 has seen her travel to Kansas City, Missouri, to play and take part in Folk Alliance 2016 – with funding assistance from Creative Scotland. Martha has just freshly returned from Nashville, where she has been co-writing her second album and playing live at the world-renowned Bluebird Cafe

 

3pm 12  th  Day  Appeared at Celtic Connections on 22 Jan in St Andrews In The Square
Catriona Price & Ester Swift
Twelfth Day are fiddle player Catriona and harpist Esther They both sing – ‘often in unison, creating a new voice that is neither one nor the other. They both write – together, having been pals since school, weaving traditional folk with classical elements to create a music that’s outside of genre. Lyrically they combine their own experiences, inspirations and dreams, informed by musical travels around the globe and their upbringings in Orkney and the Scottish Borders. They are inseparable’ They have two albums under their belt. Also an important project Routes To Roots is an international folk music sharing project- the aim is to create a network of like-minded folk musicians across continents, all interested in preserving different cultures and learning from each other. Their initial trips to Quebec, Malawi, Brazil, and Mongolia will see Twelfth Day inviting musicians from each country back to the UK to record and tour a collaboration of brand new cross-cultural music together. As well as appearing touring their new album and at The Folk Alliance last year, they are off to Chile for Womad, appearing on 19 Feb !
