Meadows Band at Forest Folk Club

Vibrant multi-instrumentalist Celtic-Crossover folk band.
5th July 2020


Description

The Meadows are a vibrant multi-instrumentalist Celtic-Crossover folk band, all drawn from one family.  Bringing cutting-edge techniques and an exciting, contemporary vibe to every show, the band perform original works which weave between foot stomping reels to rich vocal harmonies, taking their audiences on a spellbinding journey.

After completing the E.P. ‘Through the Fayre’, they toured Great Britain with a self-produced original show, Celtic Journey, alongside the international singer Kristyn Murphy who joined them from Maine.  During the tour, they performed live on television networks and BBC Radio Wales where listeners contacted the station to ask whether their performance really had been live.

The Meadows have twice played sets at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections, the International Music Eisteddfod in Llangollen, the Fishguard Folk Festival, How the Light Gets In, The Little Big Gig, Cardiff’s WMC and many other festivals and events along with regular airplay on both national and international radio and T.V. networks.  A number of their works have debuted on BBC radio.  They have been trained under some of Britain’s finest musicians including Prof. Barry Haskey (BBC NOW retired leader), Matthew Featherstone (BBC NOW Principle Flute), Christopher Williams (BBC NOW & WNO piano), the late Eva Stewart (BBC NOW Principle Piccolo), Marie-Christine Zupancic (CBSO Principle Flute) and the world-renowned contemporary flute composer Prof. Ian Clarke (Guildhall).


Doors open at 7.30 for 8.00pm start. Admission £7 on the door.
