New Roots presents… JOHN LANGAN, ALASTAIR CAPLIN and DILA VARDER.
Known for raucous abandon with trio The Langan Band (award winners at the prestigious Celtic Connections festival), tonight sees something very different from John Langan and renowned fiddler Alastair Caplin. Joined by brilliant singer Dila Varder (Dila and the Oddbeats), the trio will be performing a very special collection of traditional folk songs dear to their heart, honed at the festival campfires and after shows over the years. Expect superb musicianship and a wonderful collection from across the global spectrum, with everything from Scottish and Irish to European, American and South American folk in the mix. John, Alastair and Dila are key members of twelve-piece folk supergroup Band of Burns, also featuring Riognach Conolly (The Breath), Mikey Kenney, Adam Beattie and Dominie Hooper.
