Described as ‘a sophisticated, unexpectedly emotional set’ (The Guardian), The Shee’s most recent album, Continuum, has captivated both critics and audiences alike since it was launched at Celtic Connections in January 2016.
And this autumn, after rave reviews, two high profile tours and summer festivals, the six-piece is ready to wave it a fond farewell, with four celebratory gigs in October 2017:
9 October 2017: Nettlebed Village Club
10 October 2017: Pitville Pump Room, Cheltenham
11 October 2017: MAC, Birmingham
12 October 2017: ARC, Stockton Arts Centre, Stockton-on-Tees
The Shee is:
Lillias Kinsman-Blake: flute, graphics and visuals
Shona Mooney: fiddle
Rachel Newton: harp, vocals
Olivia Ross: fiddle, vocals
Laura-Beth Salter: mandolin, vocals

Continuum was conceived in order to celebrate The Shee’s tenth anniversary. Each member of the band commissioned a British folk musician hero to write an original piece specifically with the band in mind. The musicians chosen were: Andy Cutting, Brian Finnegan, Karine Polwart, Martin Simpson, Kathryn Tickell and Chris Wood, and the pieces given their world premiere at Celtic Connections 2016.
