Traditional music comes to Cashel on Saturday 29th September
Forester Syd House and historian Nicola Cowmeadow are both from Perth and have collaborated musically for several years, recently forming PlaidSong. They combine historical research interests with traditional, original singing/songwriting. Nicky and Syd draw on an age-old tradition of finding and learning songs from the many cultural sources of Scotland, adapting and reworking old tunes and new words. More about Plaidsong
