As of today, The Outside Track is on tour full time! In the next 7 months, we will be featured at internationally renowned traditional music festivals such as the Milwaukee Irish Festival, The Blas Festival in the Highlands and the Irish Festival tour in Germany where we are honoured to be sharing the stage with the legendary Irish band, Altan.
As we work our way from coast to coast in North America and around the UK, Ireland and Germany, we will be creating new whimsical arrangements of tunes and songs for our new album, which we plan on recording in the UK in February 2012. More news on that soon.
This past year has been a good one for us including our first trip to Cape Breton’s Celtic Colours festival, and debut appearances in the United States including the Folk Alliance Conference in Memphis, Tennessee. Since Mairi is not touring in the states, we have a developing relationship with BC fiddler, Ivonne Hernandez (now based in Boston). Ivonne is both an incredible fiddle player and a wonderful person. Norah is happy to have another west coast “Canadienne” along on the road, and Cillian is happy that he doesn’t have to dance alone up there on the stage!
