The Canny Band and Alexander Aga Røynstrand

The Canny Band are Sam Mabbett, Michael Biggins (BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2021) and Callum Convoy. A rare fusion of piano, diatonic button accordion and bodhran, the band have stormed the Glasgow traditional music scene and gained numerous high-profile appearances, including recent performances on BBC ALBA and BBC Radio Scotland. They also won ‘Up and Coming Artist of the Year’ at the 2021 MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards. “Great players with standout arrangements — really fresh and exciting” (Kathryn Tickell, BBC Radio 3 Music Planet)

Supporting the band is Norway’s Alexander Aga Røynstrand. A timber truck driver by day, he has in recent years distinguished himself as one of the foremost players of the Hardanger fiddle, widely considered to be Norway’s national instrument. Alexander performs a set of traditional folk music from his homeland, echoing tales of fjords and the farming and fishing communities that adorned them.
