ROSS MARTIN & EILIDH SHAW - APRIL 5, 2018
General Admission Adult – $19; Student – $14
Eilidh Shaw and Ross Martin finally embarked on a long awaited duo project last year after a mere 10 years of discussion.
Both are probably best known for their work with two top traditional bands; Eilidh with The Poozies and Ross with Daimh, although some may recall the early 2000s when they made up 2 fifths of the cult folk explosion that was Harem Scarem.
Between them they have been at the heart of the Scottish Music scene over the last 20 years and have toured the world both with their own groups and performing as guest artists with a vast array of top performers, clocking up over 100 album appearances with names as diverse as Gaelic Superstar Julie Fowlis, Alt-Country legend Bonnie Prince Billy, Classic Crooner Tony Christie and World Music/ Jazz Fusion impresario Arnaud Ciapolino.
The duo project sees them perform in a comfortably intimate setting, showcasing music from their native Highlands that has been passed down to them by previous generations, and combining it with more modern compositions.
ALSO COMING UP: ONE FOR THE FOXES – JUNE 15
Dave Curley, Joanna Hyde (the Hydes), and Tadhg O Meachair (Goitse) present an evening of Irish and American traditional music.
Note: There have been a number of changes within our venue in respect to fire codes, seating capacities and seating arrangements. In order to accommodate those changes we are offering a seating map to help facilitate these new requirements. We are now offering a greater number of reserved seats and less in the way of open seating for our Early Bird Special so that we can better monitor our night by night capacity. And, we have added an extra night (Thursday) with our headliners making our Early Bird Special for a Full Festival Pass both a bargain and a better experience with our top talent.
