Popular Scottish folk trio heading to Lancashire

One of Scotland’s most popular folk bands will perform in two Lancashire libraries and two village halls in February.

North Sea Gas will first take their “Fire In The Glen” tour to Garstang Library on Thursday 23 February at 7.30pm. From there they travel to Croston Old School on Friday 24 February at 7.30pm, Accrington Library on Saturday 25 February at 8pm and Tosside Community Hall on Sunday 26 February at 7.30pm.

North Sea Gas are Dave Gilfillan, Grant Simpson and Ronnie MacDonald. The trio combine their great vocals and tremendous three part harmonies with an array of instruments including: Guitars, Mandolin, Fiddle, Bouzouki, Harmonica, Whistles, Bodhrans, Banjo, all topped off with plenty of good humour.

The band’s shows, along with their albums, consist of traditional, contemporary and self-penned material put together in a style all their own. Their style has proven hugely popular during their regular tours of Scotland, America, Canada, Germany, Austria, Estonia, Turkey and many other destinations both in and outside of their home in Scotland.

The Lancashire dates form part of Spot On Lancashire’s spring season of touring, taking professional arts events to village halls and libraries across the county.

Speaking ahead of the gigs, Spot On’s Sue Robinson said:

“These guys are terrific performers that have been hugely popular wherever they go, with bags of experience touring right across the globe. They offer so much more than their fantastic music and really put on a good show for their audiences. If you’re looking for a great night out, North Sea Gas, can provide it!”

The shows are supported by Folkus, the folk arts network of the north west.
