Tyde come to New Lanark as the opening concert in the second half of Music in Lanark’s successful season.
The concert is on Saturday January 16 at 7.45pm in the Musician’s Room, The Institute, New Lanark - a wonderful venue and the perfect way to chase away the post Festive Season blues!
Seth, Heather and Andrew formed the trio Tyde in April 2008 whilst on tour in Madrid as members of Folkestra the North-East regional youth folk ensemble based at The Sage, Gateshead. In July 2008 they played in the first and only Folk Prom at the Royal Albert Hall and by December they were playing in the finals of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards.
After much critical acclaim for their first album and a year touring, they were recognised by PRS (Performing Rights Society) for Music as one of the years hardest working bands.
2012 saw the release of Tyde’s second album, ‘The Hidden Spoon’ which was released to further critical acclaim and was followed by an extremely successful UK tour.
After that the band took a year out to pursue other musical projects then reformed with a new line up and a bigger, bolder and edgier sound than ever before. 2014 saw the addition of Daniel Thorpe (2010 Young Traditional Musician of the Year) on fiddle.
Tyde’s music is dynamic with a unity of playing rarely seen on the live music scene. Centred in Scottish tradition but with a contemporary edge, Tyde deliver modern, punchy, danceable tunes, carefully arranged songs and intricate, emotional slow sets. It’s the mixture of raw energy, prodigious musical ability and clever, fresh arrangements that make Tyde something different.
Music in Lanark tries hard to make it a great night out with a great nightclub atmosphere, candles on tables, a bar and wonderful, and world class music, all for a fraction of the cost of a similar night out in Glasgow or Edinburgh.
Tickets are £12.50 either on-line at www.musicinlanark.co.uk or from the South Lanarkshire Leisure & Culture Box Office Memorial Hall in person or by phoning 01555 667999 or at the door on the night
