Shona Mooney & The Mosse Trooper Trio - Longformacus Village Hall

Musical tradition continues to be inspired by legend, landscape and love for the Scottish Borders and Northumberland.

Having grown up immersed in the music and culture of the Scottish and English Borders, the acclaimed fiddler, Shona Mooney (BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician 2006) unites with fellow accordionist extraordinaire Amy Thatcher and the highly imaginative guitarist Andy Watt. Together they create a scintillating new sound, sharing a deep commitment and passion for their traditional music. Seamlessly they move between self-penned compositions, reflecting countless contemporary influences and timeless old favourites.

Shona's unmistakable fiddle playing is complemented with innovative, gutsy and expressive arrangements by her companions. Expect occasional percussive clog dances from Amy, dazzling flat-picking tunes by Andy and a couple of songs from Shona. Allow your senses to be awakened and connect deeply with the musical heritage of the Scottish Borders and Northumberland.
