North Sea Gas - Scottish Folk!
North Sea Gas joins us for an intimate night of scottish fun in Lambertville's Listening Room, The Birdhouse Center for the Arts. Over thirty years and stronger than ever, North Sea Gas is one of Scotland's most popular folk bands with great vocals and tremendous three part harmonies. Guitars, Mandolin, Fiddle, Bouzouki, Whistles, Bodhrans, Banjo and good humour are all part of the entertainment! They have received Gold and Silver disc awards from the Scottish Music Industry Association, have recorded 16 albums, and regularly have sell out shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe!!
Member bios: Dave Gilfillan: Founding member of North Sea Gas, is originally from Edinburgh, Scotland where his interest in music started at an early age. He first learned how to play the guitar as a teenager and frequented folk clubs where he was fortunate to have met many early pioneers of the folk music scene in Scotland. He plays guitar, banjo, mandola, bodhran, foot drum, harmonica and whistle. Dave has built up a reputation for rousing sing-along vocals and big heartfelt ballads. Add to that a sense of on-stage fun and tongue-in-check humor and you can see why his brand of folk music has taken him, and North Sea Gas, all over the world. For him, to sing on stage seemed a natural thing do to.
Ronnie MacDonald: Originally from Glasgow, Scotland, lived in Australia for many years, but now lives in Edinburgh. "Mac," as he's also known, has been invovled with music and in bands most of his life. He joined the band in 2002. He plays guitar and bouzouki and sings both lead and harmony vocals.
Grant Simpson: Originally from Lossiemouth in the northeast of Scotland but now also living in Edinburgh, has been playing fiddle since he was a very young child. He is the youngest member of North Sea Gas, joining them in 2006. Besides playing fiddle he also sings harmony vocals, the occasional solo, and plays guitar, bouzouki and mandola.
