BIO

Rachel Newton and Mairearad Green present Anna Bhan

Rachel and Mairearad, both well established and celebrated Scottish musicians, are also cousins. They have come together for an exciting new project to celebrate and remember their Great Great Grandmother Anna Bhan’s involvement in the successful women-led Coigach resistance of 1852 during the Highland Clearances. Inspired by recent community plans to build a sculpture in honour of these women in the area, they composed a body of work together in Coigach and have made a beautiful duo album, due for release in the Autumn of 2024. Expect songs in both Gaelic and English, pipes, accordion, harp and fiddle.
