Holly Clarke – hailing from Coniston – is a musician and singer who performs with an infectious energy and passion for traditional song, with a powerful voice that carries and connects the traditions and tales of our times. Steeped in the tradition of ballad singing, Holly explores these old songs and finds new ways to perform their unique narratives.

Focusing on traditional Scottish music, fiddle player Ryan Young brings new life to very old tunes, playing them in his own unique way. Brimming with fresh melodic ideas, an uplifting rhythmic drive and a great depth of dynamics and precision, his playing takes the listener on an emotional and adventurous journey. Ryan holds both a first class honours and a Masters degree from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, was twice a finalist in the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards, and the prestigious BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of The Year. Ryan will be joined by guitarist David Foley of multi-award winning Scots folk band RURA.
