Cerys Matthews Tickets Now on Sale for Shetland Event in December

Tickets for Cerys Matthews, 'Cerys by Candlelight' Tour, which will have two performances in Mareel on 20th December at 5:45pm and 8:30pm, are now on sale to the public via Shetland Box Office.


The 'Cerys by Candlelight' Tour will make its way to Mareel in December for a festive feast of music, poetry, and the purely unexpected that makes each and every Cerys Matthews live show a unique experience.


It's a long way from her late 90's huge Catatonia hits and media bits that were essential to the zeitgeist of the times. Her talents have since emerged in her widely successful solo albums, ranging from 'Cock A Hoop', recorded in Nashville in 2003, through to 2009's 'Don't Look Down' and the more recent 'Explorer' (2011) which did what it said on the tin - taking the listener around the world in the same way that Cerys' hugely popular BBC 6 Music radio programme has made its reputation as a must-listen for any real music lover on a Sunday morning.


Cerys will also have a new album 'Baby, It's Cold Outside' (2012), featuring 15 winter favourites, sung with great gusto and humour, two qualities that no doubt Cerys will be looking for when she visits Mareel in Shetland.


There will be candles and also songs so familiar that you will have little option but to sing along (with a sheet in your hand). It will be winter warming magic, and the perfect way to start your Christmas Holidays with all the family.


Tickets are £23.50 (£20 under 14s for the 5:45pm concert) and can be booked via Shetland Box Office, Islesburgh Community Centre, 01595 745 555, or online at www.shetlandboxoffice.org
