Kejafi play traditional and original music celebrating the deep Australian and Scottish connection. The Sydney-based trio create an exciting and energetic sound with duel fiddles, octave mandolin and moving songs that will have your feet tapping and heartstrings pulled.
The trio formed in early 2018 after successfully establishing a monthly Scottish music session in Sydney in 2017. Since then they have played at numerous festivals, folk clubs and gigs including the Australian Celtic Festival, Sydney Folk Festival and the St Albans Folk Festival. They have also shared the stage with fiddle player Manus McGuire, piper Chris Gray and Susan O’Neill.
Fiddle player Fiona McVicar is a well respected and sought after musician and teacher with many years experience in playing traditional Irish and Scottish music in both Australia and Ireland. James Gastineau-Hills is a fiddle player who fell in love with Scottish dance music and has spent over twenty years playing it in Scotland and Australia. Ken O’Neill has played traditional music for over 20 years, accompanying Irish sessions and folk bands on guitar and Irish bouzouki.
The trio is lyrical, energetic, very Scottish and will leave their audiences wanting more.
