On Thursday 21 April The Met welcomes BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award nominees Katriona Gilmore (Rosie Doonan & the Snapdragons, ex-Tiny Tin Lady) and Jamie Roberts (Kerfuffle).
Performing together on the folk scene since 2006, their self-penned material ranges from blazing instrumentals to \’heart-wrenching\’ songs, to contemporary arrangements of traditional songs.
Jamie\’s dextrous percussive and lap-style guitar work is a visual as well as a sonic delight, while Katriona\’s intricate fiddle playing shifts seamlessly from sensitive to fiery and back again in the blink of an eye.
Shadows & Half Light, the duo\’s first full length recording, has made waves in the national music being described as \’inspired\’ by fRoots and awarded five stars by Rock\’n\’Reel. The album makes the most of Katriona and Jamie\’s multi-instrumental skills mandolin, banjo, and even trombone can be heard alongside the usual fiddle and guitar, as well as guest vocals and piano from Jamie\’s sister Kathryn Roberts.
The duo have supported the biggest names in the folk world including Dave Swarbrick, Bellowhead and Spiers & Boden.
Tickets are £8 advance and £10 on the door. To book tickets for this event please call the ticket office on 0161 761 2216 or go on line www.themet.biz
