Orcadian group Auskerry formed in summer 2023 to go busking in the streets of Kirkwall and play at local fundraising events.

The band consists of Lily Montgomery (17) on fiddle/cello, Ingrid Tait (15) on fiddle, Magnus Montgomery (14) on guitar, Tom Montgomery (11) on double bass and Jamie Sutherland (16) on percussion.

Auskerry members have performed individually alongside Fara, Capercaillie, The Chair and Saltfishforty, and supported JenEric as a band. They play a mix of Orkney, Shetland, Scottish and original tunes, and love playing together and enjoy the fun of making music.
