Celtic Quines relaunch Meeting Place gigs
Traditional music with a fresh twist
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.
