Rebecca Wright and Donald McKay were guest performers on Sunday August 14. Donald’s traditional and original songs from his native Scotland were beautifully complemented by Rebecca’s insightful Australian originals and thoughtful selection of contemporary songs. Accompanied by requinto, cello, acoustic guitar and bodhran, their show brought us all back to the heart of folk.
Rebecca is well-known on the Australian folk circuit for solo performances, inspired songwriting and sensitive cello playing. She has played at countless festivals and folk clubs, including the world-renowned Woodford, National and Port Fairy Festivals. In 2008, Rebecca met Donald while touring in the UK as guest cellosinger with Aussie group Cloudstreet, and soon found herself living in Scotland, immersed in traditional Scottish music and culture.
Since joining their songs and lives together, Rebecca and Donald have toured in Scotland, New Zealand and Australia, with highlights including Woodford, National, Cygnet, Newstead Live!, Palm Creek and Wintermoon festivals. They have released two albums, “Over Burns And Braes” (2016) and “Joys that never weary” (2012).
The concert on August 14 starts at 2pm with an opening set from The Goodwills (Bob & Laurel Wilson). Tickets are $15/$12 and bookings are essential. Contact us via the website or call Bob on 0438 525119.
