Band to play Druid’s Hall
Live music is coming to Witchcliffe tonight and later this month.
Alt-country act Sally & George take over Witchy’s Druids Hall tonight from 7.30pm.
The band features Grammy Award-nominated bassist Shelby Means and guitarist Joel Timmons, who will be bringing their stripped-back set to residents for $20 at the door.
On October 26, acclaimed multi-instrumentalist and folk musician Chris Norman beams in from Canada to showcase traditional Celtic music, including co- lonial tunes from his native Nova Scotia.
Supported by other musicians, Norman’s catalogue includes the Celtic flute, Scottish smallpipes, and singing, while other members contribute more pipes, harp and fiddle.
Norman made waves recording music for blockbusters such as Titanic and Irish feel-good movie The Stone of Destiny.
His South West tour was two years in the making.
“Chris’ versatility and virtuosity extend from the recording studio to the stage where has had led and partnered with some of the world’s most respected musicians,” promoters said.
“He maintains a busy schedule as a solo performer and tours as a duo with violinist David Greenberg and his eponymous group.”
Tonight’s show with Sally & George was lauded as moving “from rollicking, electrified rockers to stripped-down, gauzy reflections on love and faith”.
Doors open to both gigs at 6.30pm with BYO nibbles.
