Firebrand Shetland fiddler Ross Couper first made his name in award-winning band Bodega, who met as students at Plockton High School’s National Centre for Excellence in Traditional Music. Nowadays, he’s best known as a member of folk/fusion party animals the Peatbog Faeries, and for his superb duo partnership with flautist/guitarist Tom Oakes, while other recent projects include the 2020 album An Den Dey Made Tae, recorded with his guitarist brother Ryan. His New Voices commission marks Couper’s first ever foray into ensemble composition for other instruments, with the line-up including fellow fiddler Chris Stout, accordionist John Somerville, pianist Michael Biggins, bassist Duncan Lyall and drummer Stephen Henderson.
