History

 

Live Recording Made At Nitten

 

In 1995 Sheena Wellington recorded her

best selling album 'Strong Women' Live at Nitten

Folk Club.  This Greentrax recording is available

online from MusicScotland.com, click here to view

or purchase.

 

Some our current membership remember this

occasion and are keen to point out 'that's me in the background, singing along!'

 

Sheena was accompanied by Ewen Sutherland on guitar and Simon Thoumire on concertina.

Nitten was very privileged that night.  If you have never heard this recording, it comes highly recommended by a number of 'folkies', and The Scotsman said 'The mix is powerful'.  

 

Sheena was made an honorary member of Nitten Folk Club and has returned occasionally to visit us all.
