A folk band with an impressive amount of international awards and including a BBC Fame Academy winner, is coming to Runcorn on Friday 20 April when The Outside Track appears at the Brindley Theatre Runcorn on Friday 20 April.
Described as a stunning synthesis of virtuosity and energy, The Outside Track’s marriage of Canadian, Scottish and Irish music and song has been rapturously received around the world.
Hailing from Scotland, Ireland and Cape Breton, its five members are united by a love of traditional music and a commitment to creating new music on its foundation. Using fiddle, accordion, harp, guitar, flute, step-dance and vocals these five virtuosos blend boundless energy with unmistakable joie de vivre. Each player within The Outside Track is a master of their chosen instrument
This amount of talent alone would be enough to recommend the band but in this case the end result is so much greater than the sum of the parts.
The line up comprises Teresa Horgan, Mairi Rankin (Beolach), Ailie Robertson (Live Ireland Winner, BBC Young Trad Finalist), Fiona Black (BBC Fame Academy Winner), and Cillian O’Dalaigh.
