Kinnaris Quintet | 7 March

Saturday 07 March 2020
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


SEALL brings to Skye a sensational trad concert with the first all-female winners of the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Best Band of the Year Award (2019)

Fiona MacAskill (fiddle), Laura Wilkie (fiddle), Aileen (Reid) Gobbi (five-string fiddle), Laura-Beth Salter (mandolin) and Jenn Butterworth (guitar) collectively make Kinnaris Quintet. They are all accomplished musicians in their own right, but when they play together their combined energy is a sight to behold. It is a force to be reckoned with.

Uplifting, fresh, honest and powerful music…created by three fiddles, mandolin and guitar. Expect influences of traditional Scottish and Irish music, Bluegrass, old-time, classical, and new compositions, harmonies, energy and drive.

Bursting onto the scene back in 2017, Kinnaris Quintet last year wowed audiences with the release of their much anticipated debut album, Free One. It is a fitting title for a band whose love of life is given full expression through their music.

Living in Glasgow has brought these five musicians together and what makes Kinnaris Quintet’s dynamic and compelling sound is the marriage of their diverse musical backgrounds, influences and styles.

Combining Scottish and Irish folk with bluegrass and classical, Kinnaris are five musicians unable to hide their joy at making music together. It’s an enthusiasm that is infectious as anyone who has seen them live will attest. The band have quickly become the folk band to see and have played several festivals already – including an appearance at Glasgow’s iconic Barrowland Ballroom.

Kinnaris Quintet have been delighting audiences, contemporaries and critics alike since their arrival on the scene and are a group whose next moves are being eagerly anticipated.

With an opening set from local young musicians: Isy MacLean, Jos Galbraith and Elsa Galbraith
