SUNDAY 3 November 2019: Senor Cabrales & Natalie McIver
SENOR CABRALES is a unique group of six musicians hailing from Northern Spain and Australia who play traditional music from Asturias and Galicia in Northern Spain, Brittany, Ireland and Scotland. The band’s intricate melodic use of fiddle, Spanish pipes (gaita), mandolin, bouzouki, flute, whistle, tenor banjo, bombarde, mandola and bodhran, interwoven with rich harmonic rhythm and driving percussion, delivers a fresh, exciting sound which continues to thrill festival audiences throughout Australia. To date, the group has released two critically acclaimed albums, Aqui (released in 2013) and Sol Y Sombra (released in 2015). They are currently promoting their new live album Pinchos released earlier this year. Senor Cabrales are a must see for lovers of high-quality traditional music, taking audiences on a Celtic musical journey from Spain’s northwest tip to the outer Isles of Scotland.
Supporting Senor Cabrales will be local favourite NATALIE McIVER. Natalie is a relative newcomer to Orange who has quickly made a name for herself in the local music scene. Natalie, originally from Central Queensland, spent her childhood on cattle properties in small communities where reciting bush poetry was a family and community past time. Writing poetry later developed into song writing and her style has been compared to Sara Storer and the Waifs. Her songs reflect a longing for simpler times and draw on her experience of the Australian outback. Natalie describes her music as “acoustic pop with country themes”
