Tra­di­tional mu­sic with a fresh twist

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Jonathan Ged­des

The pop­u­lar se­ries of gigs at the Meet­ing Place in Stonelaw Church will re­turn at the end of Au­gust.

Acous­tic Nights at the Meet­ing Place have be­come a pop­u­lar part of the lo­cal mu­sic scene since launch­ing a few years ago.

On Au­gust 26 the venue will wel­come the Celtic Quines.

They are com­prised of Celine Donoghue, Eilidh Grant and Kather­ine Ma­cleod, and are a very en­ter­tain­ing three piece all-girl band from Glas­gow.

All three mem­bers have been per­form­ing on the Scot­tish mu­sic scene over the years in dif­fer­ent guises, and have been praised in the past for hav­ing won­der­ful in­di­vid­ual voices which they use to sing in rich three-part har­mony with stun­ning in­stru­men­tal ar­range­ments.

They are also mu l t i - in­stru­men­tal­ists, with tenor banjo, fid­dle, flute, whis­tle and gui­tar be­ing their main spe­cial­i­ties.

Their reper­toire spans English and Gaelic- lan­guage ma­te­rial, both tra­di­tional and con­tem­po­rary, and their unique in­ter­pre­ta­tion of songs both clas­sic and mod­ern, brings some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent to the Scot­tish tra­di­tional mu­sic scene.

Sup­port on the night comes as usual from the house band, the Mairs Fam­ily Band.

Doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 7.30pm.

En­try is a £5 sug­gested do­na­tion, with tea/fil­ter cof­fee and home bak­ing in­cluded. Chil­dren un­der 16 go free. There will be limited seat­ing on the night, so it’s sug­gested anyone go­ing should ar­rive early so as to avoid dis­ap­point­ment.
