Caim - Tearoom Concert

Event Type

Genre : Music - Folk/blues/world


The three members of Caim harmony trio may be separated by the Irish Sea but they are not divided musically. Pauline Vallance's roots in Scotland, Jacynth Hamill's in N. Ireland and Heather Innes's in Zimbabwe, Scotland, Northern Ireland, England and Australia all contribute to Caim's strong and varied traditional repertoire.
Also feeding in to the mix is the life experience and wider musical experience of each of the women.
Heather's vibrant a cappella singing which served her well in her early days on the folk-club circuit, continues to provide a strong foundation in the group, as does her time as a key vocalist and bodhrán player in the bands Dúlamán and Firefrost. Now and again she ventures into song-writing when a place or event speaks strongly to her. One of those songs is the evocative Rannoch.
Jacynth has a solid choral background which she puts to good use in arranging material for the group. Her pure and light voice adds an ethereal quality to the 3-part harmonies as well as suiting the plaintive solo songs she adds to the mix. She is skilled at engaging others in singing whether audiences or small groups. This also applies to dancing!
Heather and Jacynth sang as an a cappella duo for 16 years, made nine albums and toured in UK, Ireland, US, Canada, Australia and Thailand. In 2015 Pauline joined the group converting it to a harmony trio with harp and flute.
Pauline's classical as well as folk background, her instrumental skills, some honed by orchestral playing, and her lyrical voice have enriched Caim's sound and repertoire. She is a talented songwriter, turning events she has experienced, items she has read about, or a notion that has taken her fancy into a moving, a poignant or a hilarious song. Pauline also has the ability to engage folk in song interpretation or writing workshops.
A Caim concert combines Scottish and Irish traditional and contemporary songs, story and dance. We share songs that are important to us and we invite our audiences to join us in singing and dancing. You'll find music that goes straight to the heart, songs and stories to make you laugh, tunes to set your feet a-tapping and haunting harmonies that will uplift your spirit.
Caim can be booked for folk clubs, festivals, concerts (including 'House Concerts' and fund raising concerts) and conferences. They perform as a trio wherever possible but you might find the occasional Caim duo singing somewhere!
Caim music touches the heart, bringing a sense of calm, uplift and peace.
No one is quite like this group.Their recorded music is blissful, but their live performances are even more compelling, filled with a delightful array of Irish and Scottish music and charming repartee with a dose of humor.
They give you the sense that they are sharing their gifts with you personally, not just performing for an audience. Ron Somers Concert promoter for An Cuan, Rostrevor. N.Ireland
An impressive and eclectic collection of songs that reflect their disparate but conjoint Celtic backgrounds. The Scots Magazine
