A welshborn tynesider, Ceitidh Mac is a Newcastle based alt-folk cellist/singer with a progressive twist to her music. Growing up in the wilds of Pembrokeshire before heading North, she’s been carving a name for herself across the North East and beyond. Ceitidh is pronounced Katie, spelt the Gaelic way. Think ceilidh with a T.
While the folk influence is prominent in her songs, the smoky style and lo-fi studio sound combines with a contemporary electronic edge, embellished by unusual instrumentation. Her live show is an innovative take on traditional and alternative folk songs, sitting alongside her own original material which explores topics ranging from illuminating everyday experiences to subjects of deeper self reflection. The warming notes of the cello are combined with soaring vocals, creating an unusual and captivating musical experience.
‘The session supported focus and attention, sharing an experience with others, enjoyment, decision making, active listening, active participation. […] Pupils were mesmorised by Ceitidh’s performance.’ – Beverley
‘The performance enabled pupils to engage beyond expectation. Many students enjoyed the performance, one boy who can’t sit still sat for the entire concert.’ – Priory Woods
