We are very sorry to announce that our October tour will no longer be taking place. We were due to play at Nettlebed Village Club, Pitville Pump (Cheltenham), MAC Birmingham and ARC Stockton on Tees, but as two of our band members are currently dealing with serious health issues – Olivia is current undergoing chemotherapy, while Rachel is just out of surgery – we have decided not to go ahead on this occasion. Though we have looked at ways to continue with deps, we just don’t think we can do the gigs without two integral members of our team. We will be back on the road next year, and would like to thank the venues for being so understanding of the situation. For all those that had bought tickets, please do get in touch with the respective venue. With love, The Shee x
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.
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
Amy Thatcher: accordion, clog dancer
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.
