“Julie’s September Gig Dates Reminder!”

Following a hectic few weeks of major Festival performances, working for SkyArts at the highly acclaimed Cambridge Folk Festival and further filming for TV, etc, Julie is looking forward to her next 2 ‘live’ gig dates in September.  Both have already been announced, but here’s a wee reminder:

“Ňran: A celebration of the songs of Runrig” (Grand Finale of Blas 2015)

Few bands have had a bigger influence on Gaelic song than Runrig.  The songs, written by founder member brothers Calum and Rory MacDonald, will feature in a specially commissioned event “Ňran: A celebration of the songs of Runrig” which will be the Grand Finale of Blas 2015.  This takes place at the Eden Court Empire Theatre in Inverness on Saturday September 12th at 7.30pm.

The artistes appearing in “Ňran” have all either used Runrig material or collaborated with the band since it was formed in the 1970s and will include Julie (with husband Eamon Doorley & Tony Byrne), Cathy Anne MacPhee and Mŕnran, who are in many ways following in the footsteps of the Gaelic-rock trailblazers.  They will be accompanied on the evening by an ensemble of musicians from the Fčis movement, which is inextricably linked with the Blas Festival.


Julie & Québécois quartet Le Vent du Nord in Superb Double Billing

This is an exciting ‘Northern Arc Sessions’ double billing featuring Julie & her band & Quebec’s finest quartet Le Vent du Nord, at Aberdeen’s Music Hall on Sunday 13 September 2015 at 7.30pm.

This will be a superb concert not to be missed as in addition to this exciting double billing, there will be some special collaborations on the night!

Quebec’s Le Vent du Nord knows how to turn the lost past into intense and beautiful performances that push their roots in striking global directions. The group is blazing a path that connects their Québecois roots to the wider world, in both arrangements and on stage.
