Jo Philby Band

SMG’s promotion of live music continues with the return of the Jo Philby Band, all the way from Orkney, to Cannich Village Hall on Sunday 17th August.

The band retains last year’s lineup with Jo will accompanied by Elaine Grieve (harmony vocals, guitar & mandola), and two of Orkney’s brilliant young musicians – Aidan Moodie (guitar) and Graham Rorie (fiddle & mandolin). Originally from the south of England, Jo’s early inspiration stemmed from the English and Irish traditions, however over a decade living and working in Orkney now sees her cite singers from the modern Scottish folk scene as equal sources of influence, as well as country and bluegrass musicians and singers. More information and ticket details soon.
