Description

*Events are rain or shine and that tickets are available online or at the gate.

The Recollective are a dynamic four-piece band that play a mixture of traditional and original material primarily from Ireland and Scotland but also from other folk traditions. They combine songs and tunes from these traditions and weave them amongst their own contemporary styles to create an enchanting vibrant sound.

With his warm emotive and sensitive vocals, the Scotsman of the band Calum Morrison sets the scene with his repertoire of traditional, borrowed and self-penned songs. On the fiddle, Karen Hickey creates a rich depth to the music of The Recollective with her powerful yet sensitive prowess on the fiddle. On the traditional Irish flute Michael Coult brings his playful interactions and virtuosic energy to the group. Kieran Leonard, one of Ireland’s leading young percussionists, adds his own rhythmic flair to the band’s sound with his own delicate touch and grooving style. All accomplished musicians in their own rights, The Recollective resonate together and create a whirring wheel of uplifting and euphoric music rooted in tradition.

Most Botanic Garden exhibits, the BUGarium and the Aquarium are open until 8 p.m. during Summer Nights Concert events.

Gates open at 6 p.m. Music starts at 7 p.m.
