From Sheena Wellington :

At the Wighton Centre, Central Library this Saturday - 26th November - at 11am.

Chloe Matharu, singer, songwriter, harpist, sailor 

Chloe Matharu is a singer songwriter and harpist from the West Coast of Scotland. A Navigational Officer in the Merchant Navy, she offers an authentic voice for the female seafarer in the folk scene. Her ethereal and innovative music gives a glimpse into the modern mariner's life, and is truly unique.

Small Voyages is an eight track album of original songs inspired by Chloe's time at sea as a deck cadet, sailing around the world on oil tankers. The songs are set to an evocative backdrop of Celtic harp music and field recordings of the natural world.

 "Her music is truly haunting" - BBC Radio Scotland.

All welcome - Tickets £5 at the door.
