Stoatfinger is a three piece blues/folk/Americana outfit formed in 2022.

Dan Rhodes and James Groat, both familiar faces in numerous Orkney bands, are joined by Antony Hodgson, a veteran of the Sussex folk and Americana scene.

Mixing offbeat covers with original songs, they are equally at home amplified or delighting the crowd in acoustic bar-room sessions, swapping instruments and genres as they play.

They originally started jamming together at song nights shortly before lockdown. Keeping these sessions going online, they swapped songs and then formed Stoatfinger as soon as restrictions were lifted. They now host regular music nights in Kirkwall and Stromness as well as appearing at a variety of other events throughout Orkney.
