music network

Embark on an odyssey of love, loss and wonder as four incredibly talented and creative folk musicians shape songs from ages past into something fresh, dynamic – and irresistible.

When it comes to moulding traditional sounds into contemporary songs, few match the inventiveness and heart-rending emotion of Orkney-born singer Kris Drever. Freewheeling guitarist with award-winning avant-folk trio Lau, Drever has been described by Q magazine as ‘the standard bearer’ of the folk music revival.

Drever’s no-holds barred approach is shared by Julie Fowlis, a silver-toned singer whose voice – ‘pure and elemental as a Hebridean seashore’ – has seen her become Gaelic music’s most celebrated global ambassador.

Completing this outstanding line-up are multi-award winning fiddler Aoife Ní Bhriain, renowned for her technical virtuosity across both traditional and classical music and concertina player Padraig Rynne whose ensembles Guidewires, Dán and Triad have re-defined the boundaries of the traditional music world.
