Firelight Trio

Thursday, March 23, 2023 , 7:30 pm 9:30 pm

Firelight Trio play European folk music that is evocative, inventive, and endlessly exciting. Driving fiddle and gorgeous nyckelharpa meet deep accordion grooves in a rich tapestry of lively Swedish polskas and Scottish reels, lilting French waltzes, toe-tapping klezmer, dazzling original tunes and more. It is breath-taking stuff performed with masterclass panache and smile-inducing, very natural polish. They light up the room; you’ll see everyone smiling at the same time!

If multi-instrumentalist Ruth Morris (nyckelharpa, fiddle, whistle and piano) isn’t on playing duties with various different outfits, it’s likely you’ll find her lingering in the wings as musician for a big TV drama production. As a session musician, Gavin Marwick has performed/recorded with The Unusual Suspects, Session A9, Wolfstone, Shooglenifty, New Celeste and Malinky. Besides leading Scotland’s top world-folk outfit Moishe’s Bagel, Phil Alexander has collaborated with a whole bunch of UK-based musicians, including the jazz tango trio Tangalgo, McFall’s Chamber, harpist Catriona McKay and many more. For several years he was a central part of the internationally acclaimed Salsa Celtica.
