Live session: Old Lady’s Lament

This was a most remarkable session to take part in. An expedition into a very tall pine stillness.
When Luke (my bro) and I were in Canada, it was Andrew Spindor and his crew, from Habitat Studios in Vancouver, who lead us up and into Cypress Mountain to find this cabin.

And now?

The USA. Seattle has SOLD OUT. So you can’t hear me there anymore. But you could come to any others you are near to: See the list on my website if you feel compelled.

The Midnight Milk Tour…

Going to ride the wings of November, all across the UK, with Adam Holmes and The Embers.

Jen Austin and I will do our glorious thing (except for a few select shows where we’ll have the full band) and Adam will be presenting his new and beautiful album, Midnight Milk, with his wonderful band.
Come hear.

It’ll be fun.

MUGSTOCK. HI. soon. Man. This summer is being SUCH FUN.

Delighted to be playing MugStock Festival at the end of July. This lovely wee festival near Glasgow has a reputation for having a great atmosphere, a beautiful site, and a very convincing line-up. Weekend tickets are £80 including camping, but you can get a tenner off by using the discount code VIP before 17th July at 20:17. Hopefully see you there.

July is almost upon us…

July is almost upon us, a rumble of music in the distance, a summer storm of the best kind. In the immediate future, and with full band, a performance at the Paisley Arts Centre for the Scottish Alternative Music Awards Showcase on the 1st July. Then, on 3rd July, to ITALY for one show at CarroPonte in Milano. How exciting. There are more live date announcements to come… in fact quite a few… very much looking forward to sharing and seeing you soon. – RSHQ

Thank you, Ireland.


A delight to sweep along your coasts. Such adventure.
Thank you to Graham Sweeney and Rhys McBride, our constant road companions.

To all who came to hear.

Our last show in Westport was a good way to finish, with a sporadic swooping of Adam Holmes to help close the night. Now we’re at Graham’s home on the Isle of Achill before returning to real life, tomorrow.

Considerata una delle migliori promesse del folk, dalla Scozia arriva Rachel Sermanni per un appuntamento da non perdere lunedì 3 luglio al Carroponte di Sesto San Giovanni (MI). Il concerto è a ingresso gratuito.

Con la musica folk nel sangue, Rachel Sermanni, classe ’91, è una cantautrice, musicista e artista di grande spessore,
capace di trasmettere un’aura pura e mistica a chi la ascolta. Nel 2011 ha pubblicato il suo primo EP, The Bothy Sessions, registrato con un gruppo di amici in modo del tutto spontaneo e profondo in una foresta. Il vero e proprio debutto discografico risale però al 2012, quando la Sermanni pubblica il suo Under Mountaiss, prodotto da Ian Grimble e registrato nel meraviglioso Watercolour Studios, immerso nelle West Higlands. Under Mountains è il primo vero contributo musicale di Rachel Sermanni al mondo e il primo momento in cui il mondo ha davvero accolto la musica dellacantautrice. 4 anni di tour no stop le hanno permesso di trovare le giuste ispirazioni per creare nuova musica e registrare nuove sessioni, dal vivo e in studio.

Nel marzo del 2014, immersa nei bastioni della Nuova Scozia, Rachel ha gettato i semi di una nuova reazione: Tied to
the Moon è il suo secondo album, rilasciato nel 2015 con ampia attenzione da parte della critica: ascoltare questo cd è come fare una passaggiata coccolati dalla dolce luce della luna. La creatività di Rachel Sermanni è frutto di intense
collaborazioni e sinergie con amici, famiglia, insegnanti, che l’hanno sostenuta durante tutto il suo percorso con consigli e osservazioni. Per la Sermanni, la cretività è felicità.

H 21.30 – Ingresso Gratuito
