CEOLIS A2 AUG 15 FINAL RGB

Oidhche Americana

16 September 2016, CCA Glasgow, 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G2 3JD

 

Oidhche Americana is a celebration of the cultural connections between traditional Gaelic song and Americana music. This year we take inspiration from the iconic duets of Nashville’s golden age.

Doors open: 7.30pm

7.45pm: Mairi Morrison and Dòl Eoin MacKinnon are currently starring in BBC Alba’s ‘Bannan’ but both are fine Gaelic singers in their own right. For this event they will reinterpret traditional Gaelic standards and new compositions in their own inimitable style.

8.20pm: Singer songwriter Warren MacIntyre and Gaelic vocalist Lorraine Wilson are long time collaborators in Glasgow’s roots music scene. Their ethereal harmonies evoke the chemistry of Americana greats like Emmy Lou Harris and Gram Parsons. Their repertoire features inspired cover versions and original compositions.

9pm: Break

9.30pm: Kathleen MacInnes & Friends

Kathleen MacInnes is regarded as one of the finest Gaelic vocalists on the contemporary trad music scene but she has always admired classic country artists like Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette.

For this event she has assembled a crack group of musicians to accompany her on a roller coaster ride of Honky Tonkin’ good timers, Gospel Greats and Classic Country Heartbreakers.

Tickets £12/£10 – available here
