Heidi Talbot Trio
Sunday October 29, 2017
Doors 6pm for 7pm Start
Venue: St Mary’s Hall (Whitstable Umbrella Centre)
Heidi Talbot, originally from County Kildare, now lives in the Scottish Borders with her husband and musical partner, John McCusker. Her remarkably smooth and sweet singing voice was first nurtured in the church choir run by her mother and later refined at Dublin’s Bel Canto singing school. Two years after moving to New York in 2000, Heidi was invited to join Cherish The Ladies as a vocalist and embarked on a five-year partnership, during which she also released her eponymous solo debut, and 2004 follow up Distant Future.
Following 2008’s widely acclaimed In Love + Light, Heidi left Cherish The Ladies to concentrate on her solo and collaborative work. Since then two more well-received albums and nominations at the Irish Music Awards and BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards have confirmed her place as one of the most gifted artists on the UK’s folk/acoustic music scene.
This will be Heidi’s second time at the club, and we are very much looking forward to welcoming her back to Whitstable. This time she will be accompanied by Innes White on guitar and Toby Shaer on fiddle, harmonium and whistles.
