MB Folk / Ryan Kershaw / Catherine Speight / Jodie Elizabeth King (Celtic Connections on Campus ’23)

Celtic Connections on Campus is brought to you live from Glasgow Caledonian University as part of Celtic Connections in association with Celtic Music Radio and TRADtv.

From Monday 23 to Friday 27th January 2023 we will showcase some of the brightest up-and-coming talent from across Scotland both in front of the mic and behind the scenes.

Today we feature:

MB Folk
The trio, formed late 2022 by three Edinburgh College music students Arthur, Gerry and Robbie,
each with a passion for folk music. Arthur is in his thirdyear at the college, studying
towards a BA. Gerry and Robbie are both in the first year an HND. They met as
members of Edinburgh College’s Trad Band and realised their interests go beyond the instrumental
repertoire of the band.

Ryan Kershaw
South Lanarkshire born singer-songwriter delivers beautifully emotive reflections on
life. Deftly navigating the alt-folk/acoustic tradition Ryan weaves touching and thought provoking
vocals into poignant, often sublime, tracks – http://www.ryankershaw.com

Catherine Speight
Catherine grew up in Fife and has played fiddle since she was 7 years
old. She gained a wealth of performance experience, playing with contemporaries
of Jimmy Shand, including Bruce Lindsay and Donal Ring. She has been a regular performer at the Windygates Accordion and Fiddle Club, and has travelled and performed all over Scotland and Ireland.

Jodie Elizabeth King
Scottish alt-folk artist, releases her first single, Flesh and Bone, from her forthcoming debut EP. Hailing from Leven in Fife, Jodie has been writing songs for over ten years, but after a stunning performance at gig in Perth, she recently signed to Scottish indie label, Stitch Records. Jodie suggests that although she draws influence from a wide range of music, her primary influences are a lot closer to home. Jodie Elizabeth King’s work beautifully contributes to the continuum of Scottish songwriting.
Flesh and Bone (single) is out 16th December. Jodie Elizabeth King’s first EP will be released on
Stitch Records in March 2023 – https://jodieelizabethking.ffm.to/fleshandbone
