Multi-award-winning Celtic band The Outside Track is touring Canada with a new CD, and Artword Artbar is their Hamilton stop! Hailing from Scotland, Ireland and Cape Breton, the five members are united by a love of traditional music. They blend fiddle, accordion, harp, guitar, whistle, step-dance and vocals with breathtaking vitality.  Band members:
* Mairi Rankin, from Cape Breton, one of the legendary Rankin Family, plays fiddle, sings and also step-dances up a storm.
* Teresa Horgan, from Co. Cork, sings and plays flute.
* Ailie Robertson, from Edinburgh, is one of Scotland’s leading young traditional musicians and clarsach (celtic harp) virtuoso.
* Fiona Black plays accordion, intertwining her native Scottish style with Irish, Swedish and Cape Breton repertoire.
* Simon Marion, from Montreal, plays guitar on the Ontario tour. Read more…
