I was asked to make a live recording of this outstanding young fiddle trio at a house concert in Edinburgh. Their music is all composed by Simon Bradley who lives in Uist. His tunes are quite idiosyncratic and there are influences from Scotland, Ireland and Asturias. As such it illustrates a current feature of late revival fiddle repertory and style. The playing is attractive, energetic, sensitive and entertaining. Here is a video from the concert:
