Young trad stars come to Ellisland

A great evening of entertainment with a host of exciting local traditional musicians has been organised by Award winning Ellisland’s Youth Ambassador, 13-year-old Rose Byers from Lockerbie.

The event takes on Saturday December 8 at 7pm and includes D&G’s best young trad musicians including Junior Burnsian piper Gregor Grierson, Gaelic and Scots band Burnswark, singer Rowan Hastie, clarsach player Priya Rome, fiddler Aisling Anderson and flute player Rosie Ford.

The special guests are the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards winners Josie Duncan and Pablo Lafuente, a vocal/guitar duo like no other. Calling the Isle of Lewis and Glasgow/Spain home, it’s no wonder their music doesn’t focus on one place or on one of the many strands of Scotland’s web of traditions. They are well travelled, and well versed in music from across the land.

On guitar and vocals in Gaelic, Scots and English, their music is a round tour, where centuries old ballads meet songs from the mines and cotton mills, as well as some original writing.

Tickets £10/ £3 children are available from Ellisland and The Midsteeple Box Office.
