This week, British six-piece The Shee play live in the Salford studio.

The pieces were written by Karine Polwart, Brian Finnegan, Chris Wood, Kathryn Tickell, Martin Simpson and Andy Cutting.

The Shee are Amy Thatcher (accordion, clogs), Laura-Beth Salter (mandolin, vocals), Lillias Kinsman-Blake (flute, whistles), Olivia Ross (fiddle, viola, vocals), Rachel Newton (electroharp, vocals) and Shona Mooney (fiddle).

Continuum was released on the 23rd September 2016.
