Event Description

Award Winning Glasgow based folk group the New York Times calls “The best folk band to have come out of Scotland in the last twenty years”

“The best band of their generation” (The Living Tradition)

“A band with the potential to dominate the Scottish/Irish traditional scene for the next twenty years” (Fatea Magazine)

Paul McKenna has long been ranked among Scotland's finest young singers and songwriters, armed with a powerful yet intensely emotive voice and passionate social conscience, often expressed through his songs, a combination that’s brought frequent comparisons to the great Dick Gaughan.

He and his band – comprising Robbie Greig (fiddle), Conal McDonagh (pipes/whistles), Conor Markey (banjo/bouzouki/guitars) and Ewan Baird (percussion) – draw on both Scottish and Irish roots, in a dynamic, full-bodied array of original and traditional material, along with songs by like-minded authors including Peggy Seeger, Alistair Hulett and Jim Reid. Following 2016’s tenth anniversary release Paths That Wind, they’re currently touring their fifth album, we are pleased to be hosting their Victoria CD release!
