Taigh Ciùil: Sian & Seachd

*Postponed due to circumstances beyond our control.*
All booked tickets remain valid, and we will be in touch soon with new dates.
Taigh Ciùil is a series of live music nights hosted by Taigh Chearsabhagh, with the best traditional musicians and a licensed bar. Taigh Chearsabhagh is delighted to announce Sian and Seachd as our next two performances for Taigh Ciùil. We hope you can come along for what promises to be a brilliant night of music with these talented musicians.
We’ll gather for 7.30pm at Lochmaddy Community Hall, a spacious venue to keep us that little bit safer with enough room to maintain social distancing. Booking your ticket ahead is preferred, which you can purchase below. A small number of tickets will be available on the door, but with strict capacity limits, we cannot guarantee availability.
Sian, meaning “storm” or “the elements”, have been making their harmonious mark on the Scottish traditional music scene since 2016. Originally brought together to celebrate Gaelic songs composed by women; Ceitlin Lilidh, Eilidh Cormack and Ellen MacDonald keep their material firmly rooted in this theme. Their individual voices blend seamlessly, intertwining atmospheric harmonies and sympathetic accompaniment from Innes White to create a unique sound. Their highly anticipated self-titled debut album, produced by Capercaillie’s Donald Shaw, is out now.
Seachd are music students from Lews Castle College. Our group features Joseph Nicholson on bagpipes, Kyle Powell on guitar and accordion, Sheena Peteranna on small pipes and whistle, Emilia Marienfeld on fiddle and vocals, Marit Schopel on double bass, Lauren Mowat on guitar and Seamus MacRae on piano. We put this ensemble together during our weekly Live Performance classes, and although Scottish traditional music is our forte, we have wide experience of other musical genres, which, we hope, will be reflected in our performance.
