The Shee April 2017 CONTINUUM Tour
In January 2016, in order to mark their ten year anniversary, The Shee took to the stage in front of a sell-out audience to launch Continuum, – an exciting new project in which they asked six of their favourite folk musicians to compose pieces for the band. The pieces were written by Karine Polwart, Brian Finnegan, Chris Wood, Kathryn Tickell, Martin Simpson and Andy Cutting and performed by The Shee.
"Continuum is a perfect combination of The Shee‘s inventiveness and the creative voices of their contributors. Those voices, although not involved in the recording sessions, can be heard loud and clear in Continuum’s arrangements. Kathryn Tickell’s deeply cherished Northumbrian roots, Karine Polwart’s peerless song craft, the sheer joy of Andy Cutting’s compositions and the complimentary strength of Chris Wood’s; Brian Finnegan’s never ending supply of airs, jigs and reels and Martin Simpson’s beautifully poetic lyrics. Each of these are tangible elements in a unique, enthralling project that celebrates the power of collaboration, a shared love of traditional music and The Shee‘s ten years as a major force in folk music."
Neil McFadyen in his FRUK review
The 2016 Tour was so popular that The Shee are taking Continuum on the road again in April. If you missed it the first time round here´s your second chance to see a great show. See the April 2017 CONTINUUM Tour event page for full details and ticket links.
