A trio from Scotland is playing a house concert in Qualicum Beach March 20.

MacKinnon won major praise for her 2007 debut album Don’t Sing Love Songs including Up and Coming Artist of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards. She has now released the eagerly-awaited follow-up, Once Upon an Olive Branch, which also marks her first public foray into songwriting.
She’ll be performing at the Beaton’s home in Qualicum Beach with Ross Martin on guitar and Brain MacAlpine on keyboard.
