The Outside Track
SATURDAY & SUNDAY
Winner of Best Group in both the Live Ireland awards and the TIR awards, The Outside Track are one of the top Celtic acts in the world. A stunning synthesis of virtuosity and energy, their marriage of Celtic music, song, dance has been rapturously received around the world.
Hailing from Scotland, Ireland, and Cape Breton, its five members are united by a love of traditional music and a commitment to creating new music on this as a foundation. They effortlessly fuse traditional and contemporary with winning joie de vivre. Recently joined by acclaimed singer Aoife Scott, the next generation of the legendary Black Family from Ireland, they blend fiddle, accordion, harp, guitar, whistle, step-dance and vocals with breathtaking vitality.
This is a truly pan-Celtic young band bringing songs, tunes, and dance from Scotland, Ireland, and Cape Breton together in spectacular and energetic fashion.
The band is composed of Allie Robertson, one of Scotland’s most respected harpists; Teresa Horgan, from Co. Cork, who isone of Ireland’s up and coming singers; highlander Fiona Black on accordion; and Simon Marion, a guitarist of note from Canada. And for a special addition to these New England dates, Cape Breton Fiddler Emerald Rae will be joining them. Quite a punch in that combination!
