Celtic Fusion on 100.8 Revival FM returns this Tuesday, 7 March with its regular mix of music from the Celtic lands and a blend of singer-songwriter music from Scotland and around the world.
The past three Tuesday nights have featured live performance at the Hazy Recollections shows during Celtic Connections 2017 with host Findlay Napier. There will be more recordings from Celtic Connections 2017 in weeks to come, but tonight (and the Saturday 5.00pm repeat) its back to the usual format of new songs and familiar favourites plus gig guide and other bits of news.
Celtic Fusion this week features the brand new release from Jenn Butterworth (guitar and vocals) and Laura-Beth Salter (mandolin and voice) called BOUND.
Jenn and Laura-Beth have each been a presence on the UK folk scene for a number of years. They were brought together by the close-knit and progressive Glasgow folk music community, spending lots of their time jamming an eclectic mix of folk music from across the globe, particularly the UK, Scandinavia and America.
The years playing together brought a deep affinity between the two artists; their rhythms lock tightly, their voices blend so closely that it’s often hard to tell them apart!
They have developed a natural telepathy: two musicians bound together and you can hear the result with their new CD called BOUND, with tracks featured on ‘Celtic Fusion’ on 100.8 Revival FM. Listen in and enjoy!
Celtic Fusion, Tuesday 7 March 2017, 8.00-10.00pm and repeated on Saturday 11 March at 5.00 until 7.00pm and available at Catch Up anytime for 7 days after transmission.
