Harta (album)

Our band plays early and contemporary Scottish and Scandinavian music. In this three members band, we have Jack Evans on bouzouki, guitar and whistle; Ross Calderwood on small pipes and Swedish pipes; Christine Martin on nyckelharpa. We have been playing together on the Isle of Skye for around 6 years and have a unique repertoire of early Scottish and Nordic music which we are sure you will enjoy!

We are very grateful to have received funding from "Friends of Highland Music" towards the cost of producing this album. CS022098.
