Ceitidh MacLeod from Newcastle University
Ceitidh MacLeod combines the belly-warming tones of the cello, with her equally captivating singing. Currently playing with her band, Rosie Brownhill on Accordion, Will Hammond on Cajon and various percussion, and Robbie Sherrett on the 5 string fiddle; a selection of musically sensitive and creative musicians who all met while studying on the Folk and Traditional music degree in Newcastle. Using experimental techniques on the cello to create an original blend of traditional folk music with her own style and ingenuity, Ceitidh and the band have just released their first EP of original material.
Sam Begbie from Glasgow University
Sometimes it can be dull listening to a guy play guitar and sing. So come along and watch Sam clumsily juggle between guitar, banjo and mandolin. If nothing else, he’s bound to drop something at some point. Should be good!
Gnoss from Royal Conservatoire of Scotland
Gnoss are a dynamic new four-piece of fiddle, flute, guitar and percussion, that tackle energetic tune sets and driving folk song with a “maturity of ability many of a greater age will envy” (Living Tradition). All current students at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Graham Rorie, Aidan Moodie, Connor Sinclair and Gregor Kincaid have been tipped as “ones to watch” (Songlines) for their lively, engaging and honest performances. Forming as a duo in 2015, Gnoss (Graham and Aidan) picked up a prestigious Danny Kyle Award at Celtic Connections. Since then, they have reached the Semi-Finals of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award (2016), performed at the Royal Albert Hall as part of Music For Youth’s 2015 Proms, and brought out their well-received first album ‘Gnoss’ (“A promising and engaging debut.” – Songlines). They’ve also supported acts such as Sharon Shannon, Blazin’ Fiddles, Seth Lakeman, Liz Carroll and more. Now armed with a new line-up and the release of their debut single ‘Waves’, 2017 looks set to be a strong year for Gnoss.
