Kinnaris Quintet take their name from Southeast Asian mythological creatures, combining the head and body of a woman and the wings and tail of a swan. Made up of Fiona MacAskill, Laura Wilkie and Aileen Gobbi on fiddle, with Laura-Beth Salter on mandolin and Jenn Butterworth on guitar, Kinnaris Quintet combines Scottish and Irish folk music with bluegrass, classical, Scandinavian and Appalachian influences.
Their debut album Free One was released in 2018, showcasing their dynamic, fresh folk style. Having quickly become in-demand headliners, they won the Belhaven Bursary for Innovation in Music last year and continue to enthral as one of Scotland’s most excitingly accomplished current folk acts.
