CONCERT - SATURDAY NIGHT - PLEASANCE THEATRE - Scots Fiddle Festival
SFF YOUTH ENGAGEMENT PROJECT, LED BY ADAM SUTHERLAND
Young musicians from all over Scotland, led by Adam Sutherland.

GNOSS
A dynamic four-piece of fiddle, flute, guitar and percussion, Gnoss tackle energetic tune sets and driving folk song with a maturity of ability many of a greater age will envy (The Living Tradition). As current and former students at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Graham Rorie, Aidan Moodie, Connor Sinclair and Craig Baxter have been tipped as ones to watch by Songlines magazine for their lively, engaging and honest performances.
Forming as a duo in 2015, 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 four-piece, Gnoss have continued to delight at performances and festivals across the UK and Europe, earning a nomination for Up and Coming Artist of the Year at the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards 2017. With international touring complimenting the release of their debut album, Gnoss in 2019, recorded in Orkney with Brian Cromarty (Saltfishforty & The Chair), all eyes are firmly on this young quartet as they continue to stride forth from the pack.


LIZ CARROLL with JENN BUTTERWORTH
Internationally acclaimed fiddler and composer, and South Side native of Chicago, Liz Carroll is one of Irish musics brightest stars despite the geographical disconnect from her native roots. Her talent and dedication to her craft have earned her a National Heritage Fellowship, a Grammy nomination, and the Gradam Ceoil TG4 Composer of the Year Award, honouring her contributions to the immensely rich repertoire of already existing traditional Irish music. Liz has toured as a solo artist and with the Greenfields of America, Trian, as part of the duo Liz Carroll & John Doyle as well as the String Sisters project. She has already featured on fourteen albums and has appeared on many more, including a duet album with Jake Charron called Half Day Road which was released in February, 2019. The Scots Fiddle Festival are absolutely delighted to welcome her to this years festival alongside Jenn Butterworth on guitar. Jenn is one of the UKs foremost folk accompanists. An excellent collaborator, she has been a key member of a range of high-profile folk music projects, including her duo with mandolinist Laura-Beth Salter, the powerful driving sound of Kinnaris Quintet and part of the 2017 Radio 2 Folk Awards Album of the Year winner Songs of Separation. Her driving and sympathetic accompaniment style has led her to be lauded as one of the busiest trad musicians in the UK folk music scene.
