On 19th March we had a visit from 2 members of ‘The Shee’, Rachel Newton and Laura-Beth Salter at Alma. It felt like a concert in our ‘living room’ and they certainly used something like ‘fairy magic’ to enthrall the listeners. They played a mix of music including a gaelic song from Rachel, American tunes from Laura and some of their own material. There was an atmosphere of intimacy and the group seemed to appreciate being told about their backgrounds and professional paths. Both musicians allowed time for questions in between the varied music.
Our thanks go to Laura and Rachel for being so generous in their sharing of their time and music – it was a special time which all of us at Alma really enjoyed.
