Celtic Trad Trio NUA
Sunday July 14, 2019  7pm - 10:30pm (3 Hours 30 Minutes)


NUA is a Celtic ensemble performing. They are an innovative, award-winning, Toronto-based trad trio, bringing a fresh and unique sound to traditional music. They create their own distinctive original compositions, balanced with traditional and contemporary tunes drawn from Irish and Scottish traditions.

NUA consists of three award-winning members: fiddle player James Law, guitarist Graeme McGillivray and bodhrán player Jacob McCauley. The interaction between the three is what really makes the music shine, whether it be their soaring melodies or tasteful grooves.

The original tune-writing of NUA gives their music its groundbreaking, adventurous quality, as demonstrated on their debut album BOLD and follow-up album FLOW. Progressive yet hinting at the traditions of the past, NUA’s compositions will take you on an exhilarating journey, creating an atmosphere and mood unique to the listener. The trio is also well known for their exciting incorporation of odd time signatures and polyrhythms, which give the music an electrifying lift and spontaneity.

“NUA have delivered two of the finest Canadian Celtic roots albums of recent years, each one bursting with fresh and exciting ideas, magnifying the sonic scope of Scottish and Irish music.” (Penguin Eggs Magazine)
