Music at MERA is most fortunate to bring The Magpies to the Schoolhouse at this stage in their career. In the space of a few short years Bella Gaffney and Holly Brandon have become very much “in demand” at festivals and concert venues throughout the UK as well as Ireland, Portugal, Luxembourg, USA and Canada. Recently they have been joined by Ellie Gowers, another one of Briton’s up and coming folk music bright lights. These are three accomplished instrumentalist-vocalists with roots in the folk idiom who now have the experience and confidence to expand their brand of “transatlantic neo-folk” storytelling and composition into enchanting performances that cut a wide swath through traditional and contemporary stylings. Combining sublime harmonies with exquisite musicianship and impressive songwriting, The Magpies traverse Anglo and American roots, drawing inspiration from traditional Celtic folk, bluegrass and Appalachian trails, to create an effortless melting pot of music.
