Tom is from Sheffield and plays with the band Southbound and also pays solo. He is ideal to start the evening off with some songs and to introduce the following bands after his 30 minute solo spot

                                                    

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                            CAIM TRIO
Heather Innes, Jacynth Hamill & Pauline Vallance, the three members of Caim harmony trio, may be separated by the Irish Sea but they are not divided musically. Pauline’s roots in Scotland, Jacynth’s in Northern Ireland and Heather’s in Zimbabwe, Scotland, Northern Ireland, England and Australia all contribute to Caim’s strong and varied traditional repertoire.
Also feeding into the mix is the life experience and wider musical experience of each of the women.

Heather’s vibrant a cappella singing which served her well in her early days on the folk-club circuit, continues to provide a strong foundation in the group, as does her time as a key vocalist and bodhrán player in the bands “Dúlamán” and “Firefrost”. Now and again she ventures into song-writing – when a place or event speaks strongly to her. One of those songs is the evocative “Rannoch”.
Jacynth has a solid choral background which she puts to good use in arranging material for the group. Her pure and light voice adds an ethereal quality to the 3-part harmonies as well as suiting the plaintive solo songs she adds to the mix. She is skilled at engaging others in singing – whether audiences or small groups. This also applies to dancing!
Heather and Jacynth sang as an a cappella duo for 16 years, made 9 albums and toured in UK, Ireland, US, Canada, Australia and Thailand. In 2015 Pauline joined the group – converting it to a harmony trio with harp and flute.
Pauline’s classical as well as folk background, her instrumental skills, some honed by orchestral playing, and her lyrical voice have enriched Caim’s sound and repertoire. She is a talented songwriter, turning events she has experienced, items she has read about, or a notion that has taken her fancy into a moving, a poignant
or a hilarious song. Pauline also has the ability to engage folk in song interpretation or writing workshops.

Concerts
A "Caim" concert combines Scottish and Irish traditional and contemporary songs, story and dance. We share songs that are important to us and we invite our audiences to join us in singing and dancing. You'll find music that goes straight to the heart, songs and stories to make you laugh, tunes to set your feet a-tapping and haunting harmonies that will uplift your spirit.
Caim can be booked for folk clubs, festivals, concerts (including ‘House Concerts’ and fund raising concerts), conferences, and worship services. They perform as a trio wherever possible but you might find the occasional Caim duo singing somewhere!
Caim music touches the heart, bringing a sense of calm, uplift and peace.
“An impressive and eclectic collection of songs that reflect their disparate but conjoint Celtic backgrounds.” The Scots Magazine.
“Ladies, you are in my mold. Song/ harmony/ folk…great” Fraser Bruce.

SCUPPERED

SCUPPERED draw from an extensive repertoire gathered from many sources with the

emphasis traditional/contemporary folk song. They are often complimented on their vocal

harmonies and unique treatment and adaptation of well known songs. The humorous banter

between the 3 members is well known in creating friendly, audience inclusive performances

with the aim of sending people home after an event with a smile on their faces.

 

Their long standing involvement in local Folk Clubs, both as musicians and organisers, lead to the creation of ‘Coal Aston Live’ based at Coal Aston Village Hall where for many years they have

presented concerts featuring prominent artistes from the national music scene.

As resident band for these events SCUPPERED have enjoyed promoting & supporting
