Folk Festival Concert. Friday 8th June
The Poozies, Elle Munro Trio, Davy Lees


The Poozies

The Poozies

The Poozies first burst onto the folk scene in 1991, when folk music wore elaborately patterned woolly jumpers and was only seen in dingy back rooms and very late at night on BBC2 – yet from the word go they were breaking out and happily exploring the musical universe.As with all bands that have been on the road for so long there have been various line-up changes, and throughout the years The Poozies have toured worldwide, and attracted recognition and appreciation for their eclectic choice of material, unusual and exciting arrangements, and heart-tugging vocal harmonies.The current lineup includes : Mary Macmaster (Electro-harp, vocals), Eilidh Shaw (Fiddle, vocals), Sarah McFadyen (Fiddle, banjo, guitar, vocals), and Tia Files (Guitar, percussion, fiddle, vocals)
