Keggin, Smith, Stitt

Keggin, Smith, Stitt is an inter-Celtic super-trio of Manx singer, whistle, flute and keyboard player, Ruth Keggin, Welsh accordion wizard Jamie Smith and Scottish guitar and bouzouki master, Malcolm Stitt.

Ruth has made two solo albums with her own band and has recently launched a new album with the band a’Nish, who will be off to Lorient again this year. She also was part of another acclaimed inter-Gaelic trio with Scotland’s Mary Ann Kennedy (Màiri Anna NicUalraig) and Eoghan Ó Ceannabháin from Ireland with the project Aon Teanga: Un Chengey.

As well as leading the very successful and much-recorded band Mabon, Jamie Smith also is a vital component of two trios – Barrule and Alaw. He will also be performing in Lorient this year, as well as at Yr Eisteddfod Genedlaethol, which is in Cardiff this year.

Malcolm Stitt has been involved at the forefront of Scottish traditional music as a founder-member of bands such as Keep It Up and Deaf Shepherd, as well as playing with the finest folk performers from elsewhere, such as Kate Rusby and, of course, as a member of the world-renowned Boys of the Lough.

Keggin, Smith, Stitt will be performing at the Centenary Centre on Saturday 14 July at 7.30pm.
