Music Programme 2019

The members of The Tweed Project are some of the most successful young musicians on the English and Scots folk music scenes. Starting in 2015, the band appears now in 2019 in a new line-up. The musicians share a love of the folk music traditions of England and Scotland and have all their own careers to see to as well. The duo Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar, who have already played at Tønder Festival a couple of times, made their fourth album in 2018 and are twice winners of BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Evan Carson, percussion, can also be heard in Sam Kelly & The Lost Boys – another Tønder Festival favourite. Scots duo Josie Duncan and Pablo Lafuente, winners of a BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award in 2017, released their debut album in January 2018.

Then there is Ali Levack on flutes and bagpipes, one of the most respected young musicians in the field. This is their only concert in Denmark in 2019. The Tweed Project comprises Greg Russell, vocal, guitar, bouzouki; Josie Duncan, vocal; Ciaran Algar, violin; Pablo Lafuente, guitar; Evan Carson, percussion and Ali Levack, whistles and pipes.
