About this event

Here come Across the Great Divide, featuring traditional, contemporary and original songs and tunes from Celtic and Americana roots.

Karen’s fiery accompaniments matches her blisteringly paced, guitar fuelled jigs and reels as Tony adds his relaxed dobro harmonies to add depth and splashes of musical colour and Hanna fills you with delicious unworldly vibration. Before you’ve caught your breath, they shift gear into a gentle Celtic air on the harp - and then the soft Scots burr of Karen’s voice breathes life into an achingly beautiful traditional song as Tony adds sensitive counter harmonies on the dobro.

Almost unknowingly you are drawn into and welcomed to their special Transatlantic musical world. Original and traditional tunes and airs; Americana original compositions all receive the same skill and passion in their delivery until you are no longer aware of their different musical roots, nor any divide at all. Only their infectious sounds.

An Across The Great Divide concert isn’t a quiet affair. Strap yourself in for a wild, toe tapping and emotionally laden journey, perfectly held together by their passion for their traditions.

“You guys were ‘otherworldly’ last night and no one has ever had a standing ovation after all our years of putting on house concerts. You guys have something really special going on” – Brenda Shearer, singer songwriter artist

“You can imagine they would hush any folk club, or bring it to its dancing feet” – Graham Reid, Elsewhere
