Katie MacFarlane & Pablo Lafuente
Inverness Acoustic Music Club is delighted to announce the upcoming performance featuring Katie MacFarlane and Pablo Lafuente. This duo's combination of Gaelic and Spanish influences, as well as their impressive individual accolades, promise to make for an unforgettable night of music.
Katie MacFarlane, a Gaelic singer from Airdrie, has been drawn to traditional music her entire life, and her passion for the genre shines through in her performances. She has been recognized as a semi-finalist in both BBC Radio Scotland's Young Traditional Musician and BBC Radio 2's Young Folk Award competitions, and her debut EP - Ciùine Na Mara - showcases her unique blend of Gaelic and Catalan styles.
Pablo Lafuente, an award-winning guitarist originally from Spain but now based in Glasgow, has established himself as a sought-after musician in the traditional music scene. His expertise on guitar and fiddle, combined with his collaborations with notable artists such as Project Smok, Assynt, and Ross Ainslie, have made him a standout talent in the industry.
Together, Katie and Pablo are a dynamic duo, blending their individual styles and influences to create a truly unique sound. Don't miss your chance to experience their live performance at the Wee Bar in Inverness on Wednesday, April 5th, 2023 at 7:30pm.

Inverness band Dorec-a-belle returns to its roots for a pared-down three-piece set at Inverness’s new Acoustic Music Club on Wednesday 3rd May. Formed in 2011 with three local musicians Maryann Frew, Bev Fraser and Liza Mulholland, the band comprising vocals, piano, sax, accordion and guitar, has grown over the last twelve years to include double bass and drums and performing at venues and festivals all over Scotland.
TV and radio appearances have included playing on Clive Anderson’s Loose Ends show on BBC Radio 4 live from the Edinburgh Fringe, and the band has also supported major touring artistes including The Magic Numbers, Squeeze and The Staves.
For their debut performance at the Club, however, the ladies - likened to the Be Good Tanyas and The Staves - are going back to what they love best – stripped-back acoustic playing with 3-part harmonies and singing their own original songs (with a few choice covers!). The warm intimate ambience of the Acoustic Music Club in the Wee Bar is the perfect setting and Maryann, Bev and Liza look forward to seeing you there!
