Composer, producer and musician, KEPA JUNKERA was born in Bilbao in 1965. Self-taught, restless and courageous, it wasn’t long before he began down a long path through traditional music, creating his own style and carving out his own trail, making him one of the most international musicians from the Basque Country.
His studio albums have revolutionized traditional music worlds such as the Trikitixa, and his treatment of improvisations or the fusion of different styles have enrichened the Basque music scene even though his music still remains deeply rooted in tradition.Singer, harpist and BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Musician of the Year 2017 Rachel Newton recently released West, a completely solo album recorded in her Grandparents’ croft house in Achnahaird, Wester Ross. As a result she has been touring her solo show around the U.K to critical acclaim. She will perform songs from the new album alongside her Scottish Album of the Year (SAY) Award shortlisted previous release Here’s My Heart Come Take It.
