The Chair

Huinka


cd - £12.99


The Chair is an experience that will have even the most reserved audience beating a path to the dance floor. Melodies from the band’s native Orkney are mashed up with blues, dub and klezmer in an 8-piece riot of fiddles, banjos, accordions and drums. Collectively, the sound approaches the energy levels of a rock gig, yet remains acoustic at heart. The Chair, a must-see festival band, were voted Band of the Year at the 2008 MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards.

 

With two bonus live tracks from the Shetland Folk Festival.

Gavin Firth (guitar), Fionn McArthur (fiddle), Bob Gibbon (accordion), Brian Cromarty (banjo, vocals), Chas Milne (bass), Erik Laughton (drums), Douglas Montgomery (fiddle, mandolin) and Robbie Thomson (percussion)
