Cua playing Ropery Hall as part of UK tour

Irish band Cua is performing at Ropery Hall later this month as part of a short tour of the UK following the release of its latest album, In Flight Off the Islands.

The trio made up of John Davidson, Shane Booth and Ros O’Meara is noted for its love of  world folk music and through the combination of great shows and hard work, has already  played two sold out shows at the prestigious Celtic Connections Festival at the beginning of the year.  Cua has also received national and local radio airplay in throughout the UK, Europe and the US and has shared a bill with Andy Irvine, The Furey’s, and Hazel O’Connor to name but a few.

“Seeing the group live has been compared to the melodic intricacies of Planxty combined with the harmony skills of Crosby, Stills and Nash,” said Liz Bennet of The Ropewalk.  “Cua prides itself on its diversity, with subtle nods to many genres, whilst keeping a folk, world, roots and traditional line throughout.  Their approach to music is inspired by the history, landscape and peoples of the Atlantic areas”.

“Cua is going from strength to strength with stunning live shows to back up their critically acclaimed recordings,” Liz added.

The group has an expansive acoustic soundtrack blending guitars, fiddle, bouzouki, percussion and three-part harmony arrangements creating a world music folk styling that the group calls Atlantean with soaring melody lines, dirgy, intense acapella vocals and complex rhythmic structures will have the blood pumping through even the coldest of auditoriums.

Cua will be appearing at Ropery Hall on Saturday, November 30.  Tickets to see the group cost £14 or £16 in advance.  Advance tickets can be bought online at www.roperyhall.co.uk, in person at The Ropewalk’s Craft Gallery or by calling 01652 660380.
