Critically acclaimed Scottish harpist
Rachel Hair
makes her way to
Woodend Barn

Friday 23 April
along with her two partners in crime, Jenn Butterworth on guitar & vocalsand Joe Rattray on double bass. Described as folk with a bit of attitude this will be an impressive evening of traditional music with a contemporary edge!

Rachel Hair has fast made a name for herself as one of the most exciting and dynamic performers of her generation. Hailing from the Highlands, her eclectic mix of Scottish, Irish and original music is highly influenced by both her time studying alongside jazz, folk, rock and classical musicians and her mixed Scots and Irish parentage.

"Deft, sensitive playing displays a freshness and rhythmic vitality as well as notable technical prowess"****
[The Scotsman]

Rachel has performed as a soloist at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the much coveted Edinburgh International Harp Festival and several times at Glasgow's Celtic Connections Festival, where she was recently filmed playing with Irish harper Laoise Kelly for the BBC. She has also performed on the infamous BBC "Hogmanay Live" show with top musicians Eddie Reader, Phil Cunningham, Karen Matheson, Michael McGoldrick, John McCusker and Aly Bain.

"One of the most innovative young musicians to have emerged over the last few years"
[The Irish Music Review]

Her latest album "The Lucky Smile" was recorded in 2009 featuring her trio of harp, guitar and double bass together with special guest musicians. On Friday 23 April, she will be accompanied by ex member of the Anna Massie Band Jenn Butterworth as well as outstanding double bass Joe Rattray.
