The sounds of Shetland. Young, female, traditional music duo 'Blyde Lasses' are bringing the sounds of Shetland to the Haumoana Pavilion for an evening of unplugged and intimate music.

The duo's name means 'glad girls' in Shetland dialect, and Claire White and Frances Wilkins have been looking forward to their trip down under for almost a year. Fiddle player Claire White explains: 'we're excited about sharing our songs and tunes with audiences who have ancestral links to Shetland and people who just enjoy traditional music with a contemporary edge’.

Blyde Lasses formed in 2007 when Frances and Claire both found themselves living and working in Aberdeen. After several pub sessions they struck up a playing partnership which has seen them touring Ireland, visiting Canada and performing aboard the 'Glenlee' Tall Ship.

As an ethnomusicologist Frances, is expert at ferreting out old music and dusting it down for the duo. Claire works as a BBC producer by day, recording and broadcasting all manner of audio material. The pair perform traditional, contemporary and self-penned Shetland material, and are famed for their colourful coordinating outfits!

Performance will be at the Pavilion. For more information, contact: Andy Black 06 875 1297.
