Cape Breton’s Gillian Boucher and Scotland’s Bob McNeill – both now living in New Zealand – return to Halifax to celebrate the release of their new album, Race For The Sun, with a show at The Carleton on Sunday, October 20th before heading to CB for Celtic Colours. Show time is a civilized 7 PM and tickets are $17.50 advanced or $20 at the door.
Two acclaimed Celtic musicians combined with subtle grace and sharp wit – Gillian Boucher & Bob McNeill are a touch of magic and a musical force to be reckoned with. Based in New Zealand, both Gillian, an exceptional fiddler & dancer originally from Cape Breton Island, and Bob, an award-winning guitarist, singer & songwriter from Scotland, share a deeply seeded passion for their musical heritage and culture.
Gillian’s fiddle style is unique, seamlessly blending the music of her ancestors with contemporary sounds. Paired with Bob’s innovative, rhythmic accompaniment and powerful lyricism, they present a truly dynamic yet sensitive acoustic conversation that captivates any audience.
