Trio brings Scottish music to Woy Woy
The Troubadour Folk Club's next concert will feature the Kefaji trio.
It will take place from 7:30pm at Woy Woy's St Luke's Church Hall on August 24.
Fresh from releasing their first album, Coast, Kejafi are bringing their Scottish sound to Woy Woy.
Inspired by the music, dance and piping of the Scottish Highlands and islands, plus their connections to Australia, Kejafi play traditional and original tunes and songs on duelling fiddles and octave mandolin, said Troubadour president Mr Michael Fine.
The trio formed in early 2018 after establishing a monthly Scottish music session in Sydney.
He said the trio had performed at numerous festivals, including the 2018 St Albans Folk Festival and the 2019 Australian Celtic Festival in Glen Innes.
The trio comprises fiddle players Fiona McVicar and James Gastineau-Hills, and guitar and Irish bouzouki player Ken O'Neill.
"Fiddle player Fiona McVicar is a well-respected and sought-after musician and teacher, with many years' experience in playing traditional Irish and Scottish music in both Australia and Ireland.
"James Gastineau-Hills is a fiddle player who fell in love with Scottish dance music and has spent over 20 years playing it in Scotland and Australia.
Rounding out the Kefaji is Ken O'Neill, who grew up in Ireland and started his musical life in rock bands.
