CELTIC CONNECTIONS 2012 - 'HEISGEIR' – 27 JANUARY 2012

Julie is delighted to announce a further ‘special’ performance of her unique and highly acclaimed, Blas 2011 Commission of ‘Heisgeir’ at the Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow on Friday 27 January 2012.

Julie and the band, gave four performances of ‘Heisgeir’ at this year’s Blas Festival to first class reviews. Each audience was full of nothing but positive feedback and praise for Julie and her highly talented fellow musicians, for both the performance and the technical production which includes amazing effects, atmospheric filming and absolutely beautiful music all of which transports the audience immediately to the Outer Hebrides.

This new musical work which combines newly composed and traditional material influenced by Heisgeir (or The Monach Isles as they are often referred to). Building on her own family connections to Heisgeir, Julie has taken inspiration from the geography, history and legend of these now uninhabited islands to produce a new musical work. Using lyrical, filmic, narrative and musical devices to bring different aspects of the work to life, ‘Heisgeir’ features acclaimed musicians Éamon Doorley, Ross Martin and Duncan Chisholm.

Whether you were at any of the Blas 2011 performances or not, this is another rare opportunity to see this truly unique, amazing and spellbinding production!!!


Support on the night will be 'Fernhill'. Fronted by the bewitching vocals of Julie Murphy, they are one of Wales’ top contemporary folk acts, creating an intensely lyrical sound
that also features fiddle, trumpet, flugelhorn, flute, guitar and shruti box.

The Mitchell Library (Auditorium), 201 North Street, Glasgow. 7.30pm Tickets £14
