“Laura MacKenzie and The Lads” is traditional trio with a richly Irish core. The group also features music from Scotland, Cape Breton, Central France and Galicia (Northern Spain), as well as new compositions inspired by traditional forms. Their arrangements and interpretations are wonderfully arresting and always charming.
The trio features Laura MacKenzie on wooden flutes, whistles, concertina, Scottish smallpipes, Border pipes, French pipes and voice, supported by Gary Rue on guitar and Michael Bissonnette on percussion. Together, they present a dazzling spectrum of Irish and Scottish music plus Celtic music from France, Galicia, Nova Scotia and Minnesota, with great exuberance and skill.
