                                 MUSICAL TRADITIONS CLUB   OCT/NOV  2008
 
SATURDAY 18th OCTOBER
CHRIS MILES AND GORDEANNA McCULLOUGH
unique visit by these brilliant Scots singers.
Joint presentation by MTC and Cellar Upstairs .     
 NB changed venue for this night only : Exmouth Arms, Starcross Street, NW1 2HR (corner of Cobourg Street, near Euston Station). Information 020 7281 7700  http://hometown.aol.co.uk/cellarupstairs
 Gordeanna and Chris share a love of powerful songs, in meaning and presentation and the main principle in singing a song is that they feel something about it. Expect an exciting sound, and an enjoyment in each other's company that catches the audience's imagination. 
            Chris Miles sings all kinds of songs, many traditional, Scottish and Irish, some Burns, some contemporary, some political.... songs with a message, songs with feeling.
Known in Scotland and Ireland for singing unaccompanied, Chris has a versatile voice which can be powerful or sweet. She's also a wonderful observer of human nature and has the gift of turning everyday occurrences into hilarious situations. Her well worded introductions to songs often inspire new insights. 
 
          Gordeanna McCulloch began her singing apprenticeship in Norman Buchan's Ballads Club in the sixties and went on to become a fully fledged member of the Clutha, singing powerfully , mainly traditional songs. More recently she has an important role in the Glasgow-based Eurydice Choir, (i.e. not the Orpheus Choir!) . Although there's a strong traditional element to her singing, her powerful repertoire  includes all kinds of songs.
 While Gordeanna held the stage all over Europe Chris was singing away at the kitchen sink and at after-the-pub-shuts parties. Encouraged to take the floor at Kirkcaldy Folk Club in 1985, she hasn't stopped singing since.
Chris and Gordeanna teamed up with Aileen Carr and Maureen Jelks in 1991 when, as Palaver, they took Ballyshannon Festival by storm. Gordeanna  continues singing with Chris  in a memorable partnership.
