After an almost impossible venture to get the whole band together, the STRING SISTERS will perform at the Rainforest World Music Festival in Borneo on Friday night, the 13 July.
This is a unique opportunity to witness the members of the String Sisters gather together for a concert. These six lovely ladies on fiery fiddles comprise Annbjørg Lien from Norway who will join Catriona Macdonald from Scotland, Liz Carroll and Liz Knowles from America, Mairead ni Mhaonaigh (Altan) from Ireland and Emma Härdelin from Sweden to celebrate each of their region’s musical traditions.
The Sisters will be joined by some of Scotland’s leading instrumentalists- David Milligan on Piano, Conrad Ivitsky on Double Bass, James Mackintosh on drums- and from Norway, Tore Bruvoll on guitar.
With this combination, it will definitely be feet stomping stuff!
Don’t miss STRING SISTERS on RWMF main stage and definitely try to go to a day-time musical workshop where they will be featured. It might be a long time before you get to see these lovely ladies perform together in this part of the world again.
