Assynt

Award winning instrumental folk trio ‘Assynt’ are Graham Mackenzie (fiddle), David Shedden (pipes/whistles) and Innes White (guitar).

Former ‘Up and Coming Artist of the Year’ at the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards, Assynt are inspired by the great piping, fiddle and Gaelic traditions of the Highlands of Scotland. Their self penned melodies are “refreshingly contemporary” (Folk Radio UK) while remaining true to the music traditions they are rooted in.

The group have come to be recognised for their tight-knit fiddle and pipe playing blended with intricate guitar lines and grooves. Assynt’s second and latest studio release Where From Here has been described as ‘breathtakingly wonderful’ by FolkWorld.
