KAREN MATHESON - £16.50

Best known as the voice of celtic supergroup Capercaillie, Karen Matheson is one of Scotland's great voices. Singing in both English & Gaelic, her life as a performer began in her local village hall, surrounded by the traditional songs that have been her inspiration ever since. Her most recent album "Urram" is a collection of timeless songs that form a love letter to her family's Hebridean roots, her haunting vocals evoking both the landscapes & feel of island life

Support is from young Orkney female fiddle/vocal 4 piece FARA (who include Kristan Harvey of Blazin Fiddles amongst their number). Some of the brightest talent in the buzzing Scottish traditional music scene, they gave us a great sold-out show at Otley Courthouse last year and have a bright future ahead of them
