Promoting the release of their third album entitled ‘Murmurations’, The Shee continue a highly anticipated tour that showcases three exceptionally strong singers alongside astonishing instrumental prowess. Known for their diverse range of individual musical influences that combine to produce an adventurous brew of folk, Gaelic, Scots and bluegrass music, ‘Murmurations’ hosts a mixture of The Shee's signature sound, interweaving textures and a brave, stripped-back feel on certain tracks. With nominations at the BBC 2 Folk Awards to their name and awards for the best use of music, The Shee are an all-female revelation.
“The Shee arrange traditional songs in a smart, contemporary style, without losing the roots feel. Their debut album ‘A Different Season’ was really impressive. I loved it” Mike Harding, BBC RADIO 2

The Shee is an exceptional all-female band and Murmurations, their third cd, further showcases their three exceptionally strong singers alongside astonishing instrumental prowess. Their diverse range of individual musical influences combine to produce an adventurous brew of folk, gaelic and bluegrass. The arrangements on the new album are a mixture of their signature complex, inter-weaving textures and a brave, stripped-back feel on certain tracks. The new album, in part, illustrates a different side to a band unafraid to explore new territory and mix their ever-changing individual influences together, all the while managing to maintain a unique, recognisable sound.
