Continuing our special run of Fringe shows we’re hosting one of Scotland’s hottest new folk bands at Pianodrome at The Pitt.
Kinnaris Quintet is a marriage of five exquisite musicians from diverse musical backgrounds, influences and styles, all distilled into beautifully crafted and powerful arrangements. Presenting new compositions, traditional Scottish and Irish, bluegrass, old-time and classical music, their musical styles form a sound which is uplifting, honest and powerful.
The players: Fiona MacAskill (fiddle), Laura Wilkie (fiddle), Aileen (Reid) Gobbi (five-string fiddle), Laura-Beth Salter (mandolin) and Jenn Butterworth (guitar). Between them, they’ve performed with Shooglenifty, Fiddler’s Bid, Niteworks, The Shee, and Salsa Celtica. To name a few!
Date: Monday 19 August 2019
Music starts: 9pm
Location: Pianodrome at The Pitt, Pitt Street, Leith (Venue 391)
