Scotland’s internationally acclaimed and mesmerizing songstress, Eddi Reader, of Fairground Attraction fame teams up with Ireland’s own piano accordion maestro, Alan Kelly with his gang of acclaimed musicians featuring Steph Geremia on flute and vocals, John Douglas (Trashcan Sinatras) and Shane McGowan (Sean Keane Band) on guitars with Jim Higgins (Christy Moore, The Stunning) on percussion. Brimming with powerful instrumentals, alluring songs and buoyant harmonies this is a wonderful union of Scottish and Irish tradition from true masters. Alan joined Eddi’s band in 2003 and since has toured and recorded by her side for the past 20 years, the two forging an enduring musical comradery. Though this show was initially put together in 2010 as a once off collaboration, it has since developed into a headlining act and sold out their Irish tours for 9
consecutive years. Mixing the Alan Kelly Gang’s innovative perspective to the Celtic repertoire with
Eddi Readers thrilling and affecting performance, this show has been praised for leaving audiences spellbound.
Scotland’s The Living Tradition magazine has described it as ‘an astonishing concert’.
