Thursday 24 November: Gillian Boucher and Bob McNeill

bob-and-gillianHaving rediscovered a musical connection forged on the road ten years ago, award-winning artists, fiddler & step-dancer Gillian Boucher (Canada) and singer/  guitarist Bob McNeill (Scotland) are taking audiences by storm with their feisty stage act, compelling songs and riveting tunes. They are kicking off their collaborative debut with a tour of New Zealand, before hitting the road for extensive tours of Canada, the UK and Australia.

Gillian’s fiddle style is unique. She seamlessly blends the music of her ancestors with contemporary sounds, enthralling not only with the serene beauty of her music but with her stage persona and skills.  With Bob’s innovative, rhythmic accompaniment, they present a truly dynamic yet sensitive acoustic conversation that is not to be missed. Heart wrenching slow airs and riveting arrangements of songs and tunes, Gillian Boucher & Bob McNeill take what you know about traditional Scottish music and bring it to another level altogether.

The warm-up act will be a new group led by Acoustic Routes committee member Liz Auchinvole, with some well-known folk and some new faces. We’re catching them on their way to celebrate Saint Andrew’s Day later that week.

From 7.30pm at Roseneath school hall, Maida Vale Road, Roseneath. Entry $10 Acoustic Routes members and students, $15 non-members.
