Event description

Description

“Where the f*** have I been to have missed this group emerging that does EVERYTHING I LOVE?! It’s f***ing brilliant! There are so many beautiful things to say about this group...I love it!” – Greg Lawson, GRIT Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

The band - Fiona MacAskill (fiddle), Laura Wilkie (fiddle), Aileen (Reid) Gobbi (5 string fiddle), Laura-Beth Salter (mandolin) and Jenn Butterworth (guitar) are part of Glasgow’s thriving folk music community, and it is the marriage of their diverse musical backgrounds, influences and styles that makes Kinnaris Quintet’s sound so dynamic and compelling.

Between them they have performed with Shooglenifty, Fiddler’s Bid, Niteworks, The Shee, Salsa Celtica, Ross Ainslie & Jarlath Henderson Band, Dougie MacLean, Fat-Suit, Songs Of Separation and Phil Cunningham to name but a few. Meddling between new compositions, traditional Scottish and Irish, Bluegrass, Old-Time and Classical music, their musical styles form a sound which is uplifting, honest and powerful.

“... a fresh new sound and style which is theirs alone, full of drive, passion and beauty delivered with fine technical skill and good taste.” – Joe Rusby, Festival Director of Underneath The Stars Festival
