Vocoustics Promotions & Aberdeen Folk Club present:

Breanndn Begley, Kevin Henderson & Tim Edey + Finfolk

The Blue Lamp

Thursday 26th November

7 from 8pm


Aberdeen traditional music fans are in for a very special treat as three of the most significant musicians in Celtic music visit The Blue Lamp as part of a one-off tour on their way to perform a couple of shows in Shetland.

Multi-instrumentalist Tim Edey will be joined by Shetland's Kevin Henderson on fiddle and on accordion/vocals by Breanndn Begley from County Kerry.

A virtuoso on no fewer than 10 instruments Tim Edey, guitarist in the Sharon Shannon and Michael McGoldrick bands, is regarded by many to be one of the finest traditional Celtic music players of his generation. In high demand for his technical ability, charisma and improvisational quality Tim truly is a must see musician performing with a dazzling proficiency and mind-boggling feel.

Born out of Shetland's rich and vibrant fiddle tradition Kevin Henderson is one of Shetlands most prominent players, and will be sacrificing a potential celebration at the Scots Tradtional Music Awards 2009 to play these shows. He has been nominated in two categories: 'Best Live Act' for performing with the Scottish 'supergroup' Session A9 and 'Album of the Year' for Shetland's Fiddlers' Bid who he co-founded in 1994.

Kevin also plays professionally across Europe and the USA with folk legends Boy of the Lough, in which he replaced the fiddle legend Aly Bain.

To complete this exceptional line-up Tim and Kevin will be joined by Breanndn Begley, a native of County Kerry, who has been playing button accordion in Boys of the Lough since 1980. Breanndn is famous nourishing and maddening accordion playing, singing in his native Irish and as TV presenter of traditional music on Irish language channel TG4, he is a firm favourite with audiences and musicians alike.

Support comes from Aberdeen's own Finfolk who mix the Celtic music influences of Ireland, the Scottish Borders and Hungary. Featuring Tom Roche (button-accordion), Kenn Clark (guitar/vocals) and Jani Lang (fiddle) the music they produce knows no boundaries with a strong emphasis on self-penned tunes and improvisation.
