BREAKING NEWS

I am very sad to have to postpone my Australian Tour for Feb / March 2013. This is due to an ongoing serious family illness.  Please contact us for more bookings or info.

Celtic Connections was an amazing night for us and we really did receive a wonderful warm welcome from the Tron Theatre and the audience. Lots of CD sales and lots of new fans. Please do keep in touch if you are new to the band by adding your name to our mailing list

Big Burns Supper we were sorry to cancel this gig, the timing could not have been worse with the recent up-heavel due to a family illness and very much hope the organisers will have us back in future years.

 

RECKLESS ANGELS BIGGER BAND

 

RECKLESS ANGELS BIGGER BAND

The trio have expanded somewhat to include some fabulous new players.  Rowan Rheingans: fiddle, viola, banjo and vocals (Lady Maisery), Jenny Hill; double bass and vocals ( Eliza Carthy Band) and Laura Beth Salter: mandolin and vocals (The Shee), as well as Amy Geddes: fiddle, viola and vocals (Tannas) and Vera van Herringen: mandolin, guitar and vocals (New Rope String Band).  Most of the time we will continue to work as a duo or trio and the line up will include any of the above.  Every now and again, for bigger gigs and festivals we can work as the quartet. Once in a blue moon you may even see us out as a five piece. Exciting!

DID WE MENTION WE HAVE A NEW CD?

This is the first Sharon King and the Reckless Angels CD, and we are very chuffed indeed with it. 14 years of Sharon singing and songwriting has evolved through her debut CD 24 Hours (1999) to working with a pool of players known as The Nevernever Cowboys and, in turn, creating albums: Quiddity (2002) and Reckless Angels (2009). The Reckless Angels trio has evolved slowly and organically, its roots found in Sharon and Vera meeting at Shetland Folk Festival in 2002, working together on Reckless Angels in 2009 and touring as a duo, the addition of Scottish fiddler Amy in Spring 2011 completed the line up: small but beautifully formed.

Nothing = Everything is receiving 4 star rave reviews from national publications as well as being album of the week (and month) on local and internet radio.  The Scottish tour was an unmitigated success.
