Ireland's Outside Track to play at Calais Celtic Concerts

Calais Celtic Concerts will present the Internationally acclaimed Celtic super-group, The Outside Track, at the Calais High School in Calais, Maine on Saturday, September 1st, at 7 p.m. US/ 8 p.m. Canadian time. The doors will open at 6 p.m. This will be one of our biggest shows of the year!

Winner of Best Group in both the Live Ireland Awards and the TIR Awards and a finalist for Best Album in the 2016 Indie Acoustic Projects Awards, The Outside Track is one of the top Celtic acts in the world. A stunning synthesis of virtuosity and energy, their marriage of Celtic music, song and dance has been rapturously received around the world. Hailing from Scotland, Ireland and Cape Breton, its five members are united by a love of traditional and contemporary with joie de vivre, blending fiddle, accordion, harp, guitar, whistle, step-dance and vocals with breathtaking vitality.

Each player within The Outside Track is a master of their chosen instrument with the band stacking up an impressive amount of international awards. This amount of talent alone would be enough to recommend the band, but in this case the end result is so much the greater than the sum of the parts.

Ailie Robertson plays the harp/elecro harp hails from Edinburgh and has the accolades of Live Ireland Winner and BBC Young Trad Finalist under her belt. Fiona Black from the highland village of Evanton is an accomplished accordion player and a winner of BBC’s Fame Academy Winner. Teresa Horgan from County Cork plays flute and is also an emotive vocal. She has toured extensively with well-known names such as the Chieftains, Declan O’Rourke and Full Set.
