NUA is an award-winning innovative trad trio, bringing a fresh and unique sound to traditional music, creating their own distinctive original compositions, balanced with traditional and contemporary tunes drawn from Irish and Scottish traditions. NUA consists of three award-winning members: fiddle player James Law, guitarist Graeme McGillivray and bodhrán player Jacob McCauley. The interaction between the three is what really makes the music shine, whether it be their soaring melodies or tasteful grooves.
“NUA have delivered two of the finest Canadian Celtic roots albums of recent years, each one bursting with fresh and exciting ideas, magnifying the sonic scope of Scottish and Irish music.” (Penguin Eggs Magazine)
Parade is Stefan Hegerat’s trio project featuring Chris Pruden (Synthesizers) and Laura Swankey (Vocals). Inspired by his work organizing in the climate and racial justice movements, the music is equal parts grief and joy presented against a groovy, lush, synth pop backdrop.
“Stefan is dangerous, moody and in no way concerned with norms, protocols or really constraints of any kind.” (Divide and Conquer)
