Other Roads – Artworks Theatre – Friday 24th January 2014
A trio based in the UK, Other Roads are one of the top acts on the British contemporary folk circuit. They regularly tour the UK, Germany, Netherlands and other parts of Europe, as well as performing at many European folk festivals.
Gregor Borland, Pete Abbott and Dave Walmisley draw upon their diverse backgrounds in Scotland, England and Africa to create an exciting and original sound. These talented multi-instrumentalists incorporate fiddle, bouzouki, guitars, mandolin and even harmonica with some extremely fine harmony singing. They perform an eclectic mix of older and original compositions, ranging from soft ballads to foot-stomping Celtic fiddle tunes and choruses. Their expert musicianship and infectious enthusiasm, laced with humour, are guaranteed to entertain.
