Details

In their five years, these Sottish firebrands have stacked up several major awards, including 2018's Belhaven Bursary for Innovation, 2017's Folk Band of the Year both at the BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards and the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2015.

Mohsen Amini – BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards' Musician of the Year 2018 – Hayley Keenan and Graeme Armstrong meld concertina, fiddle and guitar to produce multiple layers that have enthralled and captivated audiences throughout the UK and from the USA to Australia.

Appearances at leading festivals – including the Cambridge Folk Festival, Denmark's Tønder, WOMAD UK and Las Palmas, the Philadelphia Folk Festival, Celtic Colours, Milwaukee Irish Festival and five successive outings at Glasgow's Celtic Connections – have amassed a die-hard following, while the world's folk and world music media have also lauded high credits upon the trio.

The release of their second album, Beyond, in October 2018 achieved a five-star Top of the World review in Songlines, praising the band as "incredibly infectious and endearing... fresh, invigorating, accomplished and playfully frisky."
