Born of the ongoing partnership between Fèis Rois and Festival Interceltique de Lorient, this UK première performance follows its debut in 2019, as part of the latter event’s New Leurenn (‘New Scene’) programme, which highlights emerging talents. The project brings together stellar young Gaelic song trio SIAN - Ceitlin Lilidh, Eilidh Cormack and Ellen MacDonald - renowned for their focus on female bards and forward-looking musical approach, with Breton counterparts Sterenn Le Guillou, Marine Lavigne and Enora Jegou. 

Taking turns to sing in their own and each other’s languages, they explore such common ground as the likenesses between Gaelic puirt-a-beul and Breton kan-ha-diskan (call and response songs), both forms of vocal dance music. Completing the line-up are three master musicians representing each territory: Scotland’s Duncan Chisholm (fiddle), James Ross (piano) and Jarlath Henderson (pipes, alongside Brittany’s Jonathan Dour (violin); Antoine Lahay (guitar) and Julien Stevenen (double bass).
