A TALENTED Milngavie musician is going to perform a West End Festival concert with her band The North Atlantic Trio on Saturday, June 1.

Cheyenne (29) is from Alaska but has been based in Scotland for the past ten years - Milngavie for the last seven, where she has studied the Scottish harp and works to perform and teach the Scottish harp locally and abroad.

In The North Atlantic Trio she plays in a mostly Scottish way with a Scottish guy who plays dobro in a mostly American way and an Irish guy who plays percussion she says, ‘any way’.

The trio combines Scottish, old-time Appalachian and bluegrass music for a unique musical sensation of cross-genre bricolage. The pling of the harp mingles with the slide of the dobro (a guitar with built-in metal resonator) and all held together with a variety of innovative percussion.

The North Atlantic Trio have also been busy recording their debut album recently.

They will be performing at Wellington Church, 77 Southpark Avenue, off University Avenue, G12 8LE at 7.45pm for 8pm start

Tickets £10 at door.
