The Irish side of the Celtic world gets so much attention this month that we're balancing the scales by bringing you some wonderful Scottish Celtic music.

"Cantrip must have one of the strongest group personalities on the folk circuit. Their presentation is all energy as they channel modern swoops & slides of sound into the traditional repertoire. Their music comes from wild landscapes & wild places of the spirit." -- The Orcadian

This trio of Scottish traditional musicians has been delighting audiences on all sides of the Atlantic for over a decade with driving fiddle, bagpipes and guitar. The name is an Old Scots word meaning a charm, magic spell, or piece of mischief and it aptly describes the unexpected twists and turns in their musical arrangements, likewise the compelling potency of their musicianship. Weaving together songs and tunes, both traditional and contemporary, Cantrip takes an audience on a cultural journey across Europe, weaving dense textures together and leaving listeners hungering for more.

Jon Bews - vocals, fiddle
Dan Houghton - vocals, pipes & whistles, wooden flute, bouzouki, guitar
Eric McDonald - vocals, guitar, mandolin, bouzouki
