We're so excited to announce that we will be opening for acclaimed Scottish Vocalist and Instrumentalist Julie Fowlis on October 11th 2015, 7:30 PM at the Abbey Bar above the Appalachian Brewing Company in Harrisburg, PA. The concert is presented by Susquehanna Folk Music Society, and you can get your tickets by clicking HERE.
Julie is celebrated around the world for her work in Scottish Folk Music and traditional Scottish Gaelic. To rattle of Julie's extensive list of achievements would be to include an award for "Folk Act of the Year" at the Scots Trad Music Awards in 2014, as well as her becoming the first Gaelic solo artist to nab a Scottish Music Award that same year. In addition to receiving a nomination as "Folk Singer Of The Year" at the 2015 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, Julie is also and expereinced broadcaster on radio and television. She holds a BA Honors in Applied Music, and an MA in Material Culture & The Environment in addition to her Honorary Doctorate of Music from the University in Aberdeen. In 2012 she contributed songs to the hit Disney PIXAR film "Brave." Yup, that's her singing "Touch The Sky!" is currently touring her newest record, the masterful "Gach Sgeul/Every Story."
This is going to be an incredibly special gig for our band folks, and we would LOVE you to be there with us. Julie is truly one of our heroes and we really couldn't think of anyone else we'd rather open for! Julie doesn't often tour the States, and the Harrisburg show will be smallest, most intimate venue of the tour! In short, if you hit up one Celtic Music concert in Central PA this year...It should probably be this one! If you want to learn more about Julie, our very own Peter Winter recently conducted an in depth interview with her for the Folkmama blog. It can be read by clicking HERE
