Sesar and Halliday at The Home Ground Sessions
Tickets £10 available from Two Sisters Cafe or online at the booking link. Non-alcoholic refreshments available to purchase or Bring Your Own Booze (£3 corkage fee).
Angus based singer/songwriters Chris Sesar & Gill Halliday have been rapidly gaining recognition across the music scene in Scotland and Germany with a repertoire of original material, defying the constraints of genre.
Their lyrics are key to their music; sensitive words, telling stories which are tenderly romantic and sometimes bitter with a comic twist. Beautiful melodies are embellished with soaring harmonies, accompanying soulful guitar and sublime flute.
We're also delighted to introduce guitarist Ciaran Donnelly who will be playing a support slot. Ciaran has been a working musician for many years but it was the instrumental compositions of Andy Mckee, Owen, Jon Gomm, Stephen Bennett and Michael Hedges, that inspired him to begin composing within the aesthetic of fingerstyle guitar.
Taking influence from perhaps the most renowned protagonists of this style (Michael Hedges and Andy Mckee) Ciaran composes using altered tunings, double handed tapping technique, the body for percussive accompaniment, and enjoys developing strong melodic ideas and themes to help underpin the virtuosic nature of this music.
