  1. Folk fans, this one is for you, Twelfth Day are an acoustic duo with a style which has been described as genre-blending and both edgy and inventive. Catriona Price is a singer and fiddler from Orkney, while Esther Swift is a singer and harpist from the Scottish borders. In their own words, this is not so much a duo, but a two person quartet. Their two distinctly different voices, the fiddle, and the pedal harp, build layer upon layer of a complex and ever-evolving sound, rich with rhythm, harmony and texture. Their last album Cracks in the Room, produced by legendary English folk musician Chris Wood and mixed in the USA by Oz Fritz (Tom Waits), was released to great acclaim in 2017. Its 11 entirely self-composed songs and tunes embody everything that Twelfth Day is: undaunted, adventurous, natural, virtuosic, and quite unlike anyone else. There is almost a punk/jazz sensibility in some of the songs with a nod to Nina Simone, one of the duo’s ultimate inspirational artists, in Great Green – composed in the midst of the Brexit campaign, which reflects the changes in society at the time and as cuts to disability allowance were announced. As well as more standard music traditional music they have also done some interesting covers in their own inimitable style.

  2. If you are a fan of quirky, acoustic music we feel you might enjoy Juno award nominated Mo Kenney’s stuff, her soulful acoustic music with pop sensibilities will make for an interesting evening. With her recently released third album, “The Details”, Mo Kenney traces her own strange, devastating, and ultimately hopeful trip through the trials and tribulations of booze-fuelled breakdowns, clouds of depression, and disintegrating relationships. On each of its 14 tracks, she unflinchingly confronts her annihilation and eventual redemption, leaving nothing out. The concept album is her most personal and cohesive work to date—combining elements of bruising rock ’n’ roll, vivid psychedelia, and haunting, left-of-the-dial pop, Kenney navigates the darkest waters in her life with self-deprecation, genuine soul-baring, and typical black humour. Mo Kenney’s numerous achievements for her songwriting and music are impressive for an artist who began releasing and touring less than five years ago: 2013’s Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada Prize for her song Sucker, the USA Songwriting Competition’s 1st Place Winner (Folk) for IFaked It, numerous Music Nova Scotia and East Coast Music Awards, a Canadian Folk Music Award and a JUNO award-nomination. Mo Kenney has been steadily building an international reputation and in 2016 was nominated for a Juno Adult Alternative Album of the Year for her previous album "In My Dreams". This is a rare chance to see her play in the UK, in one of only 2 Scottish dates. Well worth catching her now in an intimate cabaret style setting, because who knows what size of venue she might be playing next time. Support for this show will be local Act Katie Mackie. Katie Mackie is a local alternative singer-songwriter who has been singing and playing piano since she was a young age. She has gigged around Aberdeen in bands and as a solo artist for several years and built up a solid reputation.
