The Sorries (The Sorries)

By | Published on Wednesday 21 August 2013

Drawing inspiration from The Corries, The Sorries play a repertoire of well known Scottish folk songs, blended with their own sometimes humorous take. They received a warm welcome, playing songs the audience were familiar with and ready to sing along to, ranging from upbeat ditties to emotional ballads. Douglas Kay and Martin Philip are both talented musicians and provide an enjoyable, entertaining and very Scottish hour of music. Playing various combinations of bodhran, guitar, mandolin and vocals, the duo create a rich, interesting and beautiful sound, effortlessly switching from evocative love songs to rousing war chants. An event you don’t have to be a Corries fan to enjoy.

Quaker Meeting House, until 24 Aug (not 11, 18), 4.30pm.
