What better way to spend Mother’s Day than with the gift of music, showcasing folk sensations The Apparitions!
About the Artists
“The Apparitions” play acoustic folk music with Celtic and American influences. Caitlin Sullivan (vocals, ukulele,autoharp), Michael kilpatrick (guitars, mandolin), Gary Sullivan (whistles, harmonica and vocals) and Jenny Newcombe (fiddle, piano, guitar and vocals) weave their favourite songs and dance tunes together with a nuanced feeling for this genre. Music from Ireland, Scotland, Louisiana and Appalachia paints a picture of the love, longing, loss and joy which is the experience of people leaving their homelands in search of adventure. Caitlin’s evocative and powerful vocals are expertly and intricately accompanied by Michael, Gary and Jenny with varied and layered textures. Their energetic instrumental dance tunes bring excitement and joy to their performances and their sheer pleasure in playing together is infectious.
