About Heidi Talbot and John McCusker

Two of folk music’s most highly regarded and celebrated musicians are joining forces for the first time as a duo. 2018 will see Heidi and John celebrate their tenth year as musical partners with the release of a new EP and an extensive UK and European tour. They have both toured all over the globe in each other’s live bands but this will be the first time the pair collaborate exclusively as a duo. Between them they have shared the stage with a veritable who’s who, including – Paul Weller, Mark Knopfler, Alison Krauss, James Taylor, Teenage Fanclub, Graham Coxon, Eddi Reader, King Creosote, Tim O’Brien and Jerry Douglas.

Well known for touring with Michael McGoldrick and John Doyle, in addition, since 2008, John has been a member of Mark Knopfler’s band, playing arenas around the world. He was awarded the coveted BBC Radio 2 Musician of the Year in 2003, The Spirit of Scotland Award for music in 1999 and in 2009 and the 2016 BBC Radio 2 Folk Good Tradition Award presented at The Royal Albert Hall.

Over the past ten years Heidi has performed both as a solo artist and with the world famous group Cherish The Ladies, including a performance at the White House! The Co Kildare singer/songwriter now resident in Scotland, has been nominated for Folk Singer of the year and Best Traditional Song by BBC Radio 2, Best Live Act by the Scottish Traditional Music Awards and Best Female Vocalist at The Irish Music Awards.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Heidi Talbot and John McCusker are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
