Traditional Irish/Celtic Folk with: Cua + Antoine & Owena
This trio came over from Ireland to play for us in November 2019. Their beautiful harmonies and passionate singing, made a big impact on our audience so we are delighted to welcome them back to Grayshott again.
Since issuing their superb "Songs of The Hollow" album, Irish/Celtic Folk trio cua have gone on to become a band that has gathered in more praise than most from all sections of the music media.
Awarding the album an 8/10 rating at Americana UK, Jeremy Searle said: “This Irish trio stands right at the forefront of contemporary cutting-edge folk and even that description sells it a little short.”
Issuing a similar judgement for Acoustic magazine, Julian Piper had this to say: "At its finest, music should confound and amaze, and this trio from Ireland have the ability to be one of those outfits who can pull this off."
"John Davidson, Shane Booth & Ros O'Meara bring together dynamic and contrasting instrumentation and vocal arrangements. The group have an expansive acoustic soundtrack blending guitars, fiddle, bouzouki, percussion and 3-part harmony arrangements, to create a world music folk styling that the group call Atlantean."
Although cua were a last-minute addition to Glasgow’s Celtic Connections in January 2019, theirs was one of the very first sold-out events.

Cua are a Laois based band with members John Davidson, Shane Booth and Ros O'Meara. They like to call themselves Atlantean by which they mean, 'a kind of folk and roots style, encompassing our Celtic heritage and the influences of ancient music on later genres such as Jazz, Bluegrass, Appalachian, Americana, and a touch of psychedelic folk thrown in for good measure'.
