We warmly welcome you to this concert with Peia. Gifted with a profound and beautiful clear voice, Peia touches the hearts of all who see her. Peia's revolving collaborative ensemble weaves in rich vocal harmonies, driving percussion, and intricate guitar work, together with her own instrumentation on charangon and harmonium to create lush, organic soundscapes. Her mesmerizing performances offer authentic re-imaginings of traditional musical treasures, along with a stunning repertoire of her own original songs.
Like water from a deep well, she draws inspiration from her ancestral roots of Celtic and European folk music. With the voice of a lark, Peia dances nimbly from child ballads and 17th century Gaelic laments, to waulking songs, and Bulgarian mountain calls. She has travelled extensively to uncover melodies wise with time, and works to honour their language and stories, while bringing a piece of herself to each song she carries.
The concert will open with a short set from The Brothers Gillespie.
