Cross-Border folk multi-instrumentalists and festival favourites, The Shee, met on the Folk and Traditional Music Degree course at Newcastle University in 2006.

They are an exceptional all-female band boasting powerful and emotional vocal performances and instrumental prowess. Featuring the talents of BBC Radio 2 Folk Musician of the Year 2017, Rachel Newton on Harp, Sting’s clogger of choice, Amy Thatcher, on Accordion. For ‘Summer's Promise Tour' The Shee will be joined by a new member; Scottish-Icelandic percussionist Signy Jakobsdottir, adding a fesh approach to the band’s huge catalogue of material.

Folowing on from ‘Continuum’ which was the released in 2016 to celebrate ten years as a band, they’re now working on material for their new album. It will feature an adventurous brew of Folk, Gaelic and Bluegrass music. Expect low airs, Gaelic ballads, original songs, highenergy tunes, hypnotic riffs, and of course … clog dancing !
