Wednesday 3rd June 2009

Venue: Pleasance Cabaret Bar - 8:00pm
Admission: £8.00 (£7.00 concession)

I can never quite remember which order of names they prefer but the above would appear to be official according to My Space

From their own site

"On a black and blustery January night, three of the most distinctive female voices on the contemporary Scottish folk-roots scene got together round a Borders kitchen table with a bottle of rioja, some baked tatties and The Collected Songs of Robert Burns. What began as a brief set for a show at Celtic Connections Festival 2006 has evolved into something we're running with a wee bit further ... because we're having so much fun with it!

The three of us have wound up performing together many times over the past five years: as members of the landmark Scots Women celebration of Scots traditional song; with some of our Gaelic singing sisters, in the popular spin off touring project Scottish Women; and as members and guests of the splendid Scottish folk big band experience The Unusual Suspects (which Corrina co-directs).

Through these collaborative encounters we discovered our mutual love of inventive vocal harmony and before we knew it some of the arrangements assembled spontaneously in buses and back rooms hit the stage. And they actually worked.

When we get together we sound - well - a bit like we are! Lilting and lovely sometimes; bolshy and bawdy at others; and both dark and discordant and hopeful and happy! "

This is expected to be a very busy night. To avoid disappointment, we would advise you to reserve tickets in advance by contacting The Paddy one

Well over half the tickets for this gig have already been sold or are reserved. So, this looks like a really busy night.

"Feisty Women Power" is obviously very popular. ;-)

They played at TwickFolk last December and I think it was our busiest night of the year too....don't miss this one if you get the chance. Absolute top quality singing and song....and lovely ladies one and all.

Hi all,

We've now sold or reserved about two thirds of our tickets. This indicates that a sell out gig is highly likely.

To ensure admission, please reserve tickets with Paddy E.Bort (at) ed.ac.uk
