"Group Manoeuvre... is cunning, exhilarating and at times almost emotionally overwhelming" -Maddy Cristall, Words On Sound
Raised in a family of artists and musicians on the remote Isle of Skye, and now in-demand in throughout Europe and North America, award-winning Scottish harpist Màiri Chaimbeul combines a deep-rooted sense of Gaelic tradition with a distinctive improvising voice and honed classical technique.
A founding member of critically acclaimed Canadian indie-folk band Fish & Bird, Adam Iredale-Gray has been touring hard for the past 9 years. His writing style draws on the formative Irish sessions of his youth in Victoria, as well as contemporary folk, jazz and pop influences such as Oliver Schroer, Brad Mehldau, and Bon Iver. His tunes have become part of the standard repertoire in Western Canadian fiddle circles.
Vancouver-born fiddler Elise Boeur immersed herself in traditional music in Ireland as a youth, later moving between jazz schools in North America and Norwegian folk music college deep in the mountains of Telemark. She has brought her sonic sensitivity and passion for folk traditions to a staggering variety of projects, from alt-folk Canadiana to prog metal.
