Angela Usher: Banjo Performer playing Irish traditional music
June 5, 2019 –
Angela Usher - this year's Banjo Tutor & Performer at Ceol Aneashas has played Irish traditional music in Manchester for decades. She is dedicated to perpetuating the music through successive generations in her home city, teaching and inspiring hundreds of local school age children.
At the age of 10, Angela started tin whistle lessons with Marian Egan (Flannery) at St Wilfrid’s in Hulme and later began banjo lessons with Sully (Tony Sullivan) and then Bobby Tracey. In her early teens, Angela spent summers in Peterswell, frequently visiting the family home of celebrated box player Joe Cooley. She spent hours playing tunes on the whistle accompanied by Joe’s brother Jack on the bodhran. By the age of 15, Angela joined her first band Curragh and soon was teaching at her local Comhaltas branch. A couple of years later, Angela was a founder member, with Mike McGoldrick and others, of the popular Manchester Celtic rock group Toss the Feathers. She played on their ‘Live at the 32’ release and first studio album Columbus Eclipse.
The Gort Mile, Angela Usher’s first album, with tenor banjo taking centre stage, was released on Banjaxed Records in July 2018.

Kendall is a consummate performer, who has earned a reputation as mesmerizing live act, not-to-be-missed! This year alone she has played a string of gigs and opened for Gin Wigmore on her recent New Zealand Tour. In April she will support American roots, rock band Larkin Poe in Auckland.
“There are some artists, who when they sing, you feel like you are in a deep and meaningful conversation with them. On occasion, this is what Elise brought to her performances... it was intense, professional and beautiful to bear witness to”
