Archie McAllister, Angela Paterson and Alex McAllister bring their musical talents together for the first time at Ceol for a night of music and song. The trio are well known to many individually particularly in the west coast. Archie and Alex are brothers from Campbeltown and Angela is from Islay, the opportunity to see and hear them collaborate is an not to be missed.
Acclaimed internationally for his appearances with Scottish band Skipinnish, the feisty fiddler brings his passion, flare and love for his instrument to the fore. From foot tapping polkas to haunting highland aires and some of his own compositions listening and watching is truly spellbinding
“Islay’s songbird” takes you on an “unforgettable and memorable journey” with songs of her homeland. Emotions of sweet inspiration to waves of elation, inspired by her childhood roots and surroundings. Feel the passion of home as her “honey tinged vocals soar” taking you “Down to the River ” and “Home to Islay”.
Renowned for his musical versatility, Alex is an integral part of “The Wee Toon Tellers” and more recently “The Kinloch Ceilidh Band”, alongside his brother Archie. A master of the accordion and dab hand on the keyboard, he brings flavour to any musical scenario of any genre. Alex brings to you his very own compositions alongside some “well-kent tunes” of times gone past.
