Gnoss at The Cumberland Arms
Gnoss are a dynamic four-piece of fiddle, flute, guitar and percussion, that tackle energetic tune sets and driving folk song with a maturity of ability many of a greater age will envy (Living Tradition).
As current and former students at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Graham Rorie (Fiddle & Mandolin), Aidan Moodie (Guitar & Vocals), Connor Sinclair (Flute, Whistles & Backing Vocals) and Craig Baxter (Bodhran & Stomp) have been tipped as ones to watch by Songlines magazine for their lively, engaging and honest performances.
Forming as a duo in 2015, Gnoss (Graham and Aidan) picked up a prestigious Danny Kyle Award at Celtic Connections and reached the Semi-Finals of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award (2016).
Since expanding to a 4-piece, Gnoss have continued to impress at performances and festivals across the UK earning them a nomination for Up and Coming Artist of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards for 2017.
