We are delighted to announce that The Outside Track will be our headline act at the Linlithgow Folk Festival in September. They will play the Linlithgow Academy Theatre on Saturday 14 September 2013.
Outside Track are a five piece group of musicians from Scotland, Ireland, Cape Breton and Vancouver. It’s members are united by a love of traditional music and a commitment to creating new music on its foundation. Using fiddle, accordion, harp, guitar, flute, step-dance and vocals these five virtuosos blend boundless energy with unmistakable joie de vivre.
Each player within The Outside Track is a master of their chosen instrument with the band stacking up an impressive amount of international awards.
The line up comprises Norah Rendell (Canadian Traditional Singer of the Year nominee), Mairi Rankin (Beolach), Ailie Robertson (Live Ireland Winner, BBC Young Trad Finalist), Fiona Black (BBC Fame Academy Winner) and Cillian O'Dalaigh.
The band have enjoyed 5 years of extensive touring in the UK, Europe, Canada and the USA, including appearances at Celtic Connections.
More information will be available soon.
