Christchurch Folk Music Club
Ceollu – Tessa White & Jonathan Le Cocq – a Celtic flavour night
Ceollu began as an ‘Irish duo with a twist’ delivering traditional and untraditional songs and tunes in an unexpectedly refreshing style. Now a three-piece, Argene, Kirsten and Mary’s sound is strong in Irish flavour with a hit of rock, pop and jazz.
Argene Flack (bodhran, whistles, percussion, foot percussion) is a much sought-after performance and recording artist. She tutors in dance and instruments, is an accomplished Irish dancer and is co-director of Southern Cross Irish Dance.
Kirsten Bone (fiddle, percussion) grew up in a Welsh tri-lingual home filled with music. Surrounded by experts, it is no surprise that she began playing violin in ensembles and orchestras at a very young age. A recent arrival from the UK, she is loving the music scene here.
Mary Dunne (vocals, guitars, bouzouki, percussion) is an Irish award-winning singer songwriter and recording artist. She has two solo albums and numerous collaborated albums. When not performing with Ceollu, you might catch her with Molly’s Remedy or BottleLake Junction.
Tessa White and Jonathan Le Cocq play a unique blend of Celtic-inspired instrumental music for violin, guitar and mandolin. Spanning generations and styles, Jonathan’s background in early music and Tessa’s youthful, virtuosic tune-playing combine to deliver an extraordinary musical experience.
Doors open 7pm. Performance starts at 7.30pm, you will get a seat if you arrive close to 7pm.
