Join two of the UK's finest songwriters in the intimate and laid back surroundings of Abriachan Village Hall. Findlay and Bella are taking an evening out from running their songwriting retreat at nearby Moniack Mhor Creative Writing Centre for this one off evening of songs, stories and great craick. Bella Hardy A folk album for people who don't normally like folk music. It's both a credit to her and the genre. - Q Magazine, 4**** BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Singer of the Year 2014, Bella Hardy's fine fiddling and mesmerising voice have propelled her to the vanguard of British folk music. Creating twisted tales that touch on both the fantastical elements of Kate Bush, and the lovelorn songwriting craft of Carole King, she presents folk songs in the best tradition; not as antiquated museum pieces, but as relevant and very human artworks. Findlay Napier Genuine songcraft and wit following in the Difford and Tillbrook tradition The Sunday Herald As defined in the title of his remarkable 2015 solo debut VIP (No.2 in the Daily Telegraph's top folk albums), Findlay Napier categorically commands musical VIP status. Winner of the Burnsong Songwriting Prize in 2013, and twice nominated as Composer of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards, Findlay's career takes in protest-song showcase Shake the Chains, an ongoing co-writing project with Boo Hewerdine and many years of international touring with award-winning band Back of the Moon.
