Catrin Finch & Seckou Keita

Thu 6 Feb 2020

This multi-award winning duo, comprising Welsh harpist Catrin Finch and Senegalese kora maestro, Seckou Keita, first came together in 2013. Last year, their musical journey took them to Prince Edward Island on Canada's east coast, to work with local trio Vishtèn, global flag-bearers for their fiddle-based Acadian musical tradition.

Now this collaboration comes to the UK for a one-off tour featuring special guests Vishtèn, formed by twin sisters Emmanuelle and Pastelle LeBlanc and Quebec's Pascal Miousse. Tight harmonies, layered foot percussion and a compelling trademark blend of fiddle, guitar, accordion, whistles, piano, bodhrán and jaw harp create an expansive sound that triumphantly delivers a stunning exhibition of world-class musicianship.
