Message from the band
“Due to exceptional and unforeseen circumstances, Shine have had to cancel the remainder of their tour dates. As a band this is not a decision we have taken lightly. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope to see you at a show in the future.”
Please contact Ticket Office to arrange a refund.
After a 10 year break Shine are back together with new music and songs. Recent gigs include award nominated venue Douglas’s House in Edinburgh, a beautiful Here come the Girls night sharing the stage with another all girl band, The Shee, and a ‘return to form’ gig at last year’s Celtic Connections. Since then they have re-released their much loved album Sugarcane and are currently working on a new single, EP and album.
Shine combines Corrina, Mary and Alyth’s distinctive voices with two electro-harps, and now in 2015 they continue to lead the field with hauntingly timeless yet arrestingly modern arrangements of traditional, contemporary and original material.
“…their gorgeous harmonies and mixture of traditional Gaelic and self-penned songs meant prior plans to check out various other gigs that night were ditched and instead I treated myself to an uninterrupted set of entrancing music.” Jo Frost, Songlines
“Bewitchingly arrayed harmonies…alternating otherworldly spookiness with sparkling lighter interludes”. Sue Wilson, The Scotsman
Shine will be running a vocal harmony workshop from 4.30 to 6pm. All welcome from new to experienced singers so share a little of the Shine magic.
“Shine shone vocally, their twin electro harps used effectively but minimally in a set that entwined the voices in brave, original arrangements of songs from centuries-old Burns to recent Michael Marra.” Norman Chalmers, The List
“Gentle patterns on clarsachs overlap and blend with their vocals… weaving of complex, beguiling lines… in waves that seem to come billowing out from the stage.” Alastair Mabbott, The Scotsman
Shine will be running a vocal harmony workshop from 4.30 to 6pm. All welcome from new to experienced singers so share a little of the Shine magic. Tickets for workshop are £11.50 including handling fee. Combined Workshop and Concert ticket is £23.50 including handling fee. Concessions available.
