Gillian Boucher & Bob McNeill
August 2 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm NZST
FREE CONCERT FOR FRIENDS AND CHILDREN; $5 FOR OTHERS.
Gillian Boucher, an award-winning fiddler & dancer from Eastern Canada’s Scottish-infused Cape Breton Island, and Bob McNeill, an award-winning guitarist, singer and songwriter originally from Scotland, share a deeply seeded passion for their musical heritage and culture.
Mere months before a global lock-down, the duo released their highly anticipated new album, Race for the Sun, with a successful tour of both Canada and the USA. Race for the Sun, featuring Gillian’s unique fiddle style, paired with Bob’s innovative, rhythmic accompaniment and powerful lyricism, take what you know about traditional Celtic music and bring it to another level altogether.
