Biskee Brisht and Clash Vooar – Long Weekend

29 July 2021 @ 7:30 pm 9:30 pm

We’re really excited to present two of the Island’s outstanding bands on the same bill.

Biskee Brisht is an indie-folk-pop Manx band taking influences from the island around them and creating something new and exciting, with infectious melodies and heartfelt love songs. Their debut album, ‘Stand in the Sea’ (2020) is available now on all streaming services and CD.

Clash Vooar is Manx Gaelic for ‘Big Groove’. Their big groove has Manx language and culture at its heart, but reaches out to include a wide range of styles and influences telling old and new stories from the Isle of Man with soul, energy and originality. The seeds for the band came from a musical collaboration in 2014, set up to explore the cultural legacy of Manx folklorist Mona Douglas. Manx Gaelic singer-songwriter Aalin Clague joined forces with world music and jazz enthusiast Dave Mclean, who had been jamming some Manx grooves with the Buttimore brothers, Anglin and Simon. Aalin’s other group, electro-folksters ‘Moot’ came on board, with sampling, uke and vocals from partner Robert Cain and flute and vocals from long time friend and cultural collaborator, Breesha Maddrell. In 2017, talented drummer Danny Kneale joined the gang. They have recently been joined by the über talented Jack Mclean.
