Kinnaris Quintet is a brand new, five-strong band of vigorous, driving, high-spirited musicians who just happen to be all females.
Fiona MacAskill (fiddle), Laura Wilkie (fiddle), Aileen (Reid), Gobbi (5 string fiddle), Laura-Beth Salter (mandolin) and Jenn Butterworth (guitar) collectively make Kinnaris Quintet.
Between them they have performed with Shooglenifty, Fiddler’s Bid, Networks, The Shee, Salsa Celtica, Ross Ainslie and Jarlath Henderson Band, Songs of Separation and Phil Cunningham to name a few.
Meddling between new compositions, Traditional Scottish and Irish, Bluegrass, Old-Time and Classical music, their musical styles form a sound which is uplifting, honest and powerful.
You can also catch Laura-Beth and Jenn playing together and with other artists over the weekend.
