Ross Ainslie, Ali Hutton & Jenn Butterworth
Skillfully performed instrumental music deeply rooted in the Scottish tradition. Ross and Ali, two of Scotland’s most prominent musicians, bring together original compositions from their highly acclaimed albums, Symbiosis I and II, ranging from high octane jigs and reels to beautifully melodic slow airs. The music is a masterful blend of the old and the new, mixing in elements of traditional, rock and electronic. Their arsenal is made up of Bagpipes, whistles, guitars, cittern, drums, and electronics. Modern Scottish folk music at its mightiest!!!!! The boys will be joined by two of Scotland’s finest musicians, Paul Jennings of Croft no 5 fame, and Jenn Butterworth from Kinnaris Quintet.
Jenn Butterworth is one of the most notable folk guitarists in the UK acoustic music scene. She currently holds the title ‘Musician of the Year’ from the Scots Trad Music Awards, and was nominated for the same title in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
‘Skilful acoustic instrumental playing is elaborated and developed into bold, funky, adventurous arrangements that sometimes transform into full on Folk Rock, like Treacherous Orchestra on Acid.’ fRoots
