A Scot­tish folk group voted “Best Live Act 2013” and “Best Folk Band 2012” at the Scots Trad Mu­sic Awards will play at St. James Catholic Church in Maxville Sept. 17 at 7:30 p.m.

The show is put on by the On­tario Fes­ti­val of Small Halls, which is ded­i­cated to bring­ing top-notch tal­ent into smaller venues that dot the province’s eastern coun­try­side.

“The mu­si­cal cel­e­bra­tion is tak­ing place in in­ti­mate set­tings to build com­mu­nity, re­mind us why these spa­ces are an im­por­tant part of ru­ral land­scape and even at­tract vis­i­tors to new re­gions, “says Rosanne Lake, a pub­lic­ity rep­re­sen­ta­tive with the fes­ti­val.

As for Bre­abach, the group has spent the past five years tour­ing the globe and has just re­leased its fifth stu­dio al­bum,

Kelly Symes, fes­ti­val co­or­di­na­tor, said that the Fes­ti­val of Small Halls is bring­ing in mu­sic that speaks to the soul of ru­ral On­tario.

“We hand-picked the artists this year, en­sur­ing they have the en­ergy and pres­ence to fill a small hall to the rafters with in­cred­i­ble sound. They put on cap­ti­vat­ing live per­for­mances and are sure to win over crowds.” – Steven War­bur­ton
