The Shee: Be Dazzled!

Dazzling music from the UK 

A magical listening experience happens when you combine a group of young women with both vocal and instrumental prowess. Their amazing stage presence and dazzling technique of playing the instruments have won them followers from all over the world. The Shee  released two albums: A Different Season and Decadence. I wish I could write more about them but I have little resources. If you want to catch them live then you better be there on Friday 29th of June 2012 Sark Folk Festival, near La Moinerie, West Coast, Isle of Sark, Channel Islands.

‘The Shee… are brilliant; their version of Tom Paine‘s Bones is one of my favourite songs of the last 12 months.’ Mike HardingBBC Radio 2

The Shee are an exceptional all-female band showcasing three powerful vocalists and an astonishing level of instrumental prowess. Their diverse range of individual musical influences combine to produce an adventurous brew of Folk, Scots, Gaelic and Bluegrass, earning them considerable recognition along the way with high profile performances at festivals including Cambridge and Celtic Connections, as well as concerts across Europe and Canada. Their debut album ʻA Different Seasonʼ was released in 2008, followed by nominations in both the MG AlbaScots Trad Music Awards and the BBC 2 Folk Awards 2009.
