Celtic Fusion: Rachel Hair Trio in concert

This week’s Celtic Fusion programme on 100.8 Revival FM is another of the specials recorded at Celtic Connections 2016 festival during January 2016.

The Rachel Hair Trio performed at the Glasgow Art Club, Bath Street in the centre of Glasgow on Friday 29 January 2016.

The Rachel Hair Trio released their third album “Tri” (meaning three) late last year with many of the tunes from the CD album showcased in this concert including Jigs For Mann, Starry Eyed Lads, Tune For Esme, Duke Of Fife’s Welcome To Deeside and My Darling Fair One.

Rachel explained that she likes to delve into the musical archives for long forgotten tunes which she gives a modern twist to and she did not disappoint on the evening to a sell-out at the Glasgow Art Club.Daoiri Farrell CC2016

The support performer for the evening was Daoiri Farrell (pictured right) from Dublin and who is a very accomplished entertainer with his mix of music and humour. In this very intimate venue he was in his element.
