ROOTS IN MANCHESTER in association with 'All Things Considered' is delighted to announce that the new trio 'MANCUNIA' will be making their first ever public appearance at the Ukrainian Cultural Centre in Manchester, this summer.
The band comprises Maartin Allcock - multi-instrumentalist from Manchester, living in Harlech; Andy Dinan - twice All-Ireland Fiddle Champion, from Manchester, living in Manchester; Tim O'Connor - Songwriter/guitarist, from Manchester, living in France.
Writing on his own website www.maartinallcock.com Maart says 'We will be playing all kinds of stuff. Tim O'Connor is a great songwriter and Andy Dinan's fiddle playing is awesome. This is eclectic. We're tackling some home-grown songs, some folk music, some self-penned instrumentals, and rescuing some great songs from their previous cage of a prog-rock heritage. We've started putting material together now for demos and towards an album.'
It is possible that the album will be ready in time for their gig in Manchester!
The date has not been set but it will be announced here very soon. Keep checking back on www.all-things-considered.org and click through to 'Events'
