Having swiftly achieved the transition from exciting new prospect to in-demand headliners, Glasgow’s Kinnaris Quintet – on three fiddles, mandolin and guitar - continue to evolve and enthral as one of Scotland’s most excitingly accomplished current folk acts. Balancing elegantly layered finesse with bare-knuckle attack, their intricately configured sound distils Celtic, Nordic, Appalachian and minimalist elements. “Skilful and sophisticated. . . really rather remarkable” (Living Tradition)
Featuring four top young Scottish talents on fiddle, viola, vocals, piano and guitar, Westward the Light – here launching their debut album - brings together acclaimed duo Charlie Grey and Joseph Peach with Sally Simpson (Heisk/Hannah Rarity) and Owen Sinclair (Tannara/Inyal).
