Rootsbase: Westward The Light

A new live music club - dedicated to presenting the very best in folk, trad and roots-based!

Westward The Light is a remarkable new band - a collaboration between piano/ fiddle duo, Charlie Grey, and Joseph Peach (BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award Finalists 2017), fiddle and viola player Sally Simpson (Catriona Hawksworth and Sally Simpson, Heisk), and guitarist and vocalist Owen Sinclair (Tanara, Inyal).

This band is the result of years of collaboration in a range of settings. Westward The Light a vessel for the members of the group to bring together an expansive knowledge of Scottish Folk style, ethos and culture, isolating and expanding on significant themes to create a new expression of an age-old sound.
