Seanchas @ The National Folk Festival Fiona McVicar / Rosie McDonald / Anthony Woolcott / Ken O'Neil
These time travellers in sound together unlock the secrets shrouded in the words, music, symbols and stories of the past - from beautiful ballads and songs of the joy of lovers re-united to choruses delighting in the seasons, from toe tapping, skirt-swirling fiddle tunes to evocative mist-swirling airs. Seanchas bring you the music that inspires and delights them. With 2 guitars, 2 Irish bouzoukis, fiddle, bodhran and 3 part vocal harmony, Seanchas explore the depths and breadth of the folkloric canon to bring you the music that inspires and ignites them.
