Folklore - in rare acoustic mode
Folklore brings together four fine musicians from such well respected bands as Jiggery, Triantan, RAPT and Mothers of Intention. Fresh from gigs at The Turning Wave Celtic festival, they have a wealth of material to offer.
Folklore are all well respected in the folk music scene & together they explore the songs & tunes of the tradition making them as relevant now as ever.
Sensitive and energising arrangements, and exquisite instrumentation with
Cliona Molins (Para celtic harp)
Fiona McVicar (fiddle, viola, bouzouki)
Anthony Woolcott (bodhran)
Rosie McDonald (guitar, bouzouki)
along with sweet four part harmonies, make Folklore a must see. Prepare to be transported!
"The ensemble delves into the Folkloric canon but with an original and innovative bent. They also present some wonderful Celtic harp pieces & rousing fiddle sets."
"They have respect for the old ballads, and with two of the most beautiful voices on any folk programme, they have no need for dance beats, or other trickery to please their listeners."
85 Allambie Road
Formerly the Allambie Heights Uniting Church, Humph Hall is now the private home of Gial Leslie and Wayne Richmond.
As with all concerts in Humph Hall, 'Folklore' will perform acoustically - no PA system!
