Barber presents Angela Usher Trio w/ Hannah Marie Donelon

Please note this is an 18+ event


Angela Usher is an Irish tenor banjo player from Manchester and has played Irish traditional music in Manchester for decades. Angela’s playing is unassuming, with refreshing interpretation and the melody always shines through in her subtle, intricate playing. Her feeling for each tune is personal and heartfelt. She also flows effortlessly from banjo to tin whistle, to guitar, to mandolin and back.

‘The Manchester Irish music scene’s best kept secret is out’, and Angela will be bringing us a special set of traditional and original music, accompanied by other equally accomplished local musicians.



Influenced by Sean Nos singing from a young age, Hannah Marie has used this sturdy grounding in storytelling and tradition to explore the complexities of the past, identity, home and, fan favourite, heartache. With a movement towards alt country, Appalachian vocals and a ‘‘melancholic electricity”, Hannah Marie embarks on sharing both traditional ballads and her own material with you along with some very special musicians.
