Gordie Tentrees & Jaxon Haldane

Folk, blues and Americana from Tentrees with fellow Canadian Jaxon Haldane on banjo, mandolin, cigar-box guitar and bowed saw.

Gordie Tentrees’s home base, in Canada’s remote Yukon territory, can’t be the easiest place to tour from, but the Ontario-born singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist must have the logistics down pat by now, thanks to steadily increasing demand for his richly melodic, grittily insightful ballads.

After 550 concerts in 11 countries since coming together in 2014, including Celtic Connections (Glasgow) and National Folk Festival (Australia), Gordie Tentrees & Jaxon Haldane released their debut album, ‘Grit’. Recorded live with 10 instruments – banjo, dobro, cigar box guitars, musical saw, acoustic guitar, porch board bass, harmonica, snare tam & mandolin, brotherly harmonies and masterful storytelling.

This promises to be a special evening.


Support Act

Caitlin Gilligan

Young Scottish singer-songwriter Caitlin Gilligan grew up in rural Galloway, now based in Manchester, her songs still echo the wild empty spaces of her childhood. Her influences include artists such as Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Nick Drake as well as more contemporary artists such as The Tallest Man On Earth and Laura Marling.

Mixing old folk songs into sets of clear-throated and poetically-crafted originals, she demonstrates refreshing insight; whilst simultaneously summoning the ghosts of the 1960’s Greenwich village.

Although still a fresh-face on the folk scene, she has already managed to secure support slots for artists such as The Rails, Rachel Sermanni and Ewan McLennan.

…she, like a siren of the sea, draws you into an intimate, and enchanting performance. – FRINGE CULTURE BLOG
