Saltfishforty + Twelfth Day

Woodend Barn, Banchory on Friday 2 October 2009 at 8pm

Saltfishforty are Douglas Montgomery (fiddle/viola) and Brian Cromarty (guitar/mandola/vocals).

Combining the traditional music of Orkney with original compositions, their reputation as a fresh and dynamic live act now has the band well established on the Scottish scene, as well as in Europe and the US.

Firm favourites on Deeside, Saltfishforty are a powerhouse of a duo, always playing to capacity audiences and winning new fans wherever they go. Supported tonight by Twelfth Day, another duo, made up of Catriona Price, an ex pupil of Douglas, on fiddle, and Esther Swift, an ex pupil of Catriona McKay, on harp.

The stars that shone brightest were the deadly double act Saltfishforty barnstorming their way through a sizzling set While traditional Orcadian tunes are sprinkled throughout their set they playfully throw hints of jazz, blues and country into the mix, but the overall impression was of a footstomping feast of fun. Brian Ferguson (Living Tradition)

Their sound reveals a fluency across [a] range of styles, and a dab dual hand at knitting them all together, all propelled by a punchy drive An alchemic blend of superb musicianship and empathy, adding up to a fiery new force. Sue Wilson (The Sunday Herald)
