Event Description

Accordion player Kathleen Boyle visits the Comarty Old Brewery this Friday night, as an established player in the popular Scottish band Dochas, but with a growing reputation in her own right. And she has won the respect of someone who knows all about accordion playing. Commenting on her debut solo CD, Phil Cunningham says "It’s been a joy to watch Kathleen’s musical career develop over the last few years. She has always been good but here in her first solo venture she’s outstanding".
Kathleen is from Glasgow, but comes from a family steeped in the traditional music of Donegal. That is very apparent in her music, which combines rich traditional roots with the dynamic sounds of the best of today's young musicians.

Kathleen has won All-Scotland and All-Britain titles on the instrument. In 1999 she made history as the first graduate of traditional music in Scotland, receiving her degree from the R.S.A.M.D. where she now lectures. She plays the accordion with a sensitive and masterful, understated ease. She can play loud and wild with the best of them, but as Phil Cunningham adds, “she never lets flash get in the way of the main point.”

As Phil Cunningham says, the CD “An Cailín Rua” is a revelation, showing the great talent and rare maturity of this impressive musician. It is a mix of her own material and traditional tunes and songs from Scotland and Ireland - often learned from her father and grandfather. Using the magic of modern technology, she pays tribute to her musical legacy on the album, by including her father on one tune, along with a 1953 archive tape of her grandfather’s fiddling.

Kathleen will be supported in Cromarty by a multi-talented band who would each be worth the admission fee on their own: Martin O’Neill on bodhran, Jenna Reid on fiddle and Ewan Robertson on guitar.

Cromarty needs no introduction to the talents of Ewan Robertson, who has become a bit of a regular. Martin O'Neill will ensure a strong and rhythmic heartbeat to the sound of the accordion, and there is sure to be tremendous interplay with Shetlander Reid's fiddle. Indeed, with Kathleen Boyle at the lead, this will be something of a Scottish super-group squeezed on to the Old Brewery’s small stage.

The Kathleen Boyle Band plays the Cromarty Old Brewery at 8.30pm on Friday 22 May.

We serve supper between 7.00 and 7.30, but we're not licensed so it’s BYOB.

Tickets are £10 (£15 with supper) from centre@cromarty-training.com or 01381 600277or text 07788106409
