We have some wonderful concerts coming up:
Duncan Chisholm Band: Sunday 15 September: 8 pm in the Coronation Hall. Tickets £15
Duncan Chisholm is one of Scotland’s most recognised and accomplished fiddle players and composers. Born and brought up near Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland, Duncan has spent most of his life developing his unique musical voice. Fiddle playing at its best, Duncan’s feather-light handling of dynamics and ornamentation, allied with his pure-distilled tone, lend his characteristic spine-tingling magic to his music. The correlation between music and the natural world lies at the heart of what inspires Duncan, and the elements that make the Highlands of Scotland such a unique canvas have been the main force and motivation behind his music in recent years.
His first appearance in Ulverston in 2018 was the most acclaimed concert that Furness Tradition have presented; the performance received rave reviews from the entire audience.
Tickets are bound to sell well. Grab yours to this fantastic concert by calling the Coronation Hall Box Office on 01229 587140 or buy Online 24/7 by clicking HERE
The JigDoll Ensemble
Thursday 17 October: 7.30pm in the Coronation Hall. Tickets: £15
Hannah James has been an unmatched force of innovation in British folk for nearly two decades.
A multi-faceted performer, James’ virtuoso talent spans all her four disciplines: singer, accordionist, composer and clog dancer. Hannah first played at Furness Tradition as a member of Kerfuffle; her clog dancing had the audience demanding an encore. She and Sam Sweeney supported Steeleye Span at Forum in Barrow and the audience were very taken with the support act. Hannah’s most recent visit to Ulverston was in May as a member of Lady Maisery; again a very popular concert.
In 2015, Hannah introduced her one-woman show, JigDoll, an immersive, unforgettable song and dance experience mixing cutting-edge looping technology with vocal, accordion and composition skill, a multi-layered soundscape, providing the backdrop for Hannah’s spellbinding fusion of traditional and wholly original dance.
JigDoll Ensemble sees Hannah joined by three masters of their instrument: percussionist András Des (Hungary), fiddle player Kate Young (Scotland), and bassist Marti Tarn (Estonia), perfectly articulate James’ visionary ideas for song, tune and dance.
The resulting live masterpiece debuted at 2017’s English Folk Expo, gaining an awestruck standing ovation from distinguished folk industry professionals from around the globe.
