As if that’s not enough there is also great music in Mallaig the week before with Kathleen MacInnes, Laoise Kelly and Tiarnan O Duinnchinn. They are appearing at the West Highland Hotel on Thursday the 4th of May. Other local venues for them include Sabhal Mor Ostaig and the Caol Community Centre.
Brenley MacEachern and Lisa MacIsaac have toured the world together for almost twenty years, and have acquired a number of accolades, including a Juno nomination, a Canadian Folk Music Award for Best Vocal Group Album of the Year, and a Critic’s Choice award from Country Music People’s Magazine. Their songs have been featured in the notorious music magazine MOJO’s Top 10 Playlist, and received a mass of acclaim from outlets such as the BBC, the CBC, Maverick Magazine and NPR, and earned the duo the Grand Prize in the 2010 John Lennon Song Writing Contest. They don’t get to Scotland very often, usually only for big festivals like Celtic Connections so we are very lucky to get them to Arisaig. They’re delighted to be coming as it’s giving them a long-awaited opportunity to visit Eigg, where some of Lisa’s ancestors come from. They will be in the Astley Hall on Tuesday the 9th of May. Doors open at 7.30, music starts at 8. It will be a rare treat of beautifully played and sung rootsy/americana music, hope to see lots and lots of you there.
