Cappuccino Concert with Tarneybackle
Admission is £5, tea/coffee available for small donation
Friends of Wighton are delighted to welcome a return visit from TARNEYBACKLE for a Cappuccino Concert on Saturday 22nd September.
This tuneful and lively group’s material is a blend of traditional and contemporary folk song, performed with strong vocal harmonies and a wide range of instruments.
The trio is comprised of Sandy Marshall (Vocals, Guitar, and Bouzouki), Lorna Davidson (Vocals, World Percussion) and John Davidson (Vocals, Guitar, Mandola, Mandolin, Whistles).
Their interpretation and presentation of Scots song has brought them praise from reviewers, and a growing fan base from their extensive live performances and radio work, including appearances at the Scottish Parliament, Orkney Folk Festival, and on BBC Radio Scotland radio shows “Reel Bend” and “Take The Floor”.
Tarneybackle has released six albums to date
“Tullibardine” “Distant Dreams” “The Diamond” “Winds of Freedom”, “Looking Out” and “Singing Land”
“The enjoyment is infectious” – The Scots Magazine
“One of the best folk-based acts in Scotland” – Perthshire Advertiser
“I reverently suggest they be short-listed for a possible future “Sultans of Trad” award.” – FolkWorld
Orkney Folk Festival Reviews – “Tarneybackle gave a full-sounding and genuine performance…….kept the audience entertained between songs with humorous banter for good measure.”
“fusion of traditional and contemporary folk, with strong vocals from John Davidson intensifying the performance.”
