The Led Zeppelin of the folk world” – The Scotsman

 

Fiddlers Jenna Reid, Bruce Macgregor, Allan Henderson and Iain Macfarlane are joined by Anna Massie on guitar/fiddle and Andy Thorburn on keyboard in a firey blend that raises the roof. No other band has quite captured the excitement, passion and the sensitivity of Scottish music.

 

This is moving music from Scotland’s great ambassadors of the centuries-old Scots tradition. Changing direction as tightly as a flock of birds, their reels can take the breath away” – Scotland on Sunday
