ABOUT WIDDERSHINS

Sheila Paton and Heather Rathbun both hail from Southern
Alberta and are proud to be adding to musical tapestry of their
hometown. They 
are dedicated lifetime musicians, who
met by chance, creating a seamless team and a perfect musical match.


In addition to a lifetime of lessons and performances, they have
received training in vocal technique, music history, 
and
composition from the University of Lethbridge. They both shared
the same private voice teacher, Dr. Sandra Stringer-Conlon.
Experiencing the same teachers may have contributed to the
perfect blend of their two
 voices. Sometimes in recording sessions
one will say to the other “is that you or me?” and even Orin Bishop, who
helps with recordings and tech, has often mixed up their voices,
despite his engagement to Heather. In addition to vocals, their
music features piano, bodhrán, 
and flute. Using pre-recorded
instruments played by one or both musicians this duo can create a
full sound that suits large groups or provide a relaxing background
to intimate settings. Both vocal and instrumental

performances are available for booking.

 

The term Widdershins describes the goal of the music.
Widdershins is the Scottish word for counterclockwise. It
embodies their desire to create something unique as 
well honoring
their heritage and their love of Celtic music. While Widdershins
describes themselves as “Celtic Crossover,” no style is off limits.
They perform 
celtic, classical, pop, rock, and jazz. They are happy
to rework your 
favourite song to suit a particular event or to write
an original to mark a special occasion. Music can be performed live or a
recording commissioned. Whether you're planning a large or intimate gathering or a gift
for someone special, Widdershins music will make it something to remember.
