David Francey

TUES 21: David Francey with Shane Simpson (Canada) 8pm.
David Francey's list of achievements in the folk music industry keeps on growing. He is without a doubt, one of Canada's best musical exports and easily lives in the category created by James Keelaghan & Stan Rogers. With David is Shane Simpson from Ottawa who incorporates elements of blues, jazz, flamenco and bluegrass in his guitar-playing; which undeniably add to the character and depth of Francey's writing.

Sandy Brechin & Ewan Wilkinson

Leading Scottish musicians Sandy Brechin(accordion) & Ewan Wilkinson(guitar) with Alison Smith(fiddle) play for a ceili (celtic dance).

The Wailing Jennys

SAT 25: The Wailin' Jennies (Canada) +Tony Eardley 8pm.
The Wailin’ Jennies are an outstanding Winnipeg acoustic roots trio.
“Here is a female vocal trio of exceptional talent. Great voices, simple arrangements, great songwriting and careful choice of material. This is about as good as contemporary folk gets.” Bruce Elder, Sydney Morning Herald
Note: This concert was originally scheduled for The Eastside Arts Centre, Paddington, but has been transferred to The Harp.


SUN 26: Mozaik (Ireland, Bulgaria, Holland, U.S.A.) + Myriad 7pm.
The ultimate multi-national supergroup with an amazing and unique blend of Celtic, Eastern European and Appalachian Mountain music. Not to be missed! (Also appearing at The Basement Friday 24 March)
