Artist Intro: Assynt

Assynt (SCO) are a trio of relatively young but already highly acclaimed musicians. Assynt is actually something of a super group: all three players have received individual recognition in top end folk competitions and fiddler Graham MacKenzie has released a solo album. The quality of the music on their debut album is, accordingly, pretty amazing: tight, virtuoso playing with lots of sheer joy – this is as fresh as Scottish trad can get. The band received the Upcoming Artist Award in the 2018 Scottish Trad Music Awards and I’m very much looking forward to a great many brilliant moments with their music.
