In this year's Sunday concert we are celebrating the legacy of the inimitable Norma Waterson. Norma's impact on the English folk revival is incalculable. Along with her family, she breathed new life into traditional song and her influence will be felt by generations of performers and fans of English music. Her career spanned more than fifty years, throughout which she was constantly redefining the English tradition.

This concert, led by Eliza and Martin Carthy, will pay tribute to Norma's huge legacy, and will feature a special guest list to be announced very soon.

MARTIN & ELIZA CARTHY

Queen's Hall, EDINBURGH

Tae Sup At The Queen's : Martin & Eliza Carthy | Rónán Ó Snodaigh & Myles O Reilly | Iona Fyfe

Songwriter James Yorkston’s gloriously eclectic nights of music and sounds have made a new home at The Queen’s Hall.

“I just try and mix things up, keeping the line-ups interesting, not one particular genre or theme to a night… A lot of the people I ask to play are friends who I’ve nown for years, or just people I’ve met on the road whose music has taken to me. When programming, I start with Who would I like to see play? and work from there…” (James Yorkston)

These are intimate, multi-act shows, opening with a few songs by James Yorkston and hosted in the snug of The Queen's Hall's new performance space. There’ll be a few unreserved seats on a first-come-first-served basis, then standing space.
