ORKNEY DISTILLING'S MUST SEE ACTS FOR 2019

Saltfishforty are a fresh and dynamic duo hailing from the Orkney Islands in the north of Scotland. Douglas Montgomery (fiddle/viola) and Brian Cromarty (songs/guitar/mandola) combine the rich traditional music of Orkney with original compositions. 
Julie Fowlis is a multi-award winning Gaelic singer who is deeply influenced by her early upbringing in the Outer Hebridean island of North Uist. With a career spanning five studio albums and numerous high profile collaborations, her ‘crystalline’ and ‘intoxicating’ vocals have enchanted audiences around the world.
Featuring the collective and acclaimed talents of Eric Linklater, Nathan Omand and Jake Watson, Banyan is an exciting new band on the Orkney scene. With twin fiddles and guitar, a mixture of old and new material, and naturally engaging stagecraft, this trio is a firm “one to watch”.
