This Scottish band was formed in 2005 by three of the most talented young folk musicians of the early twenty-first century. Kris Drever (Orkney, Scotland; guitar/vocals), Aidan ORourke (b. Scotland; fiddle) and Martin Green (b. England; piano accordion) boasted over 10 years experience as session musicians and recording artists between them, with notable projects including Fine Friday (Drever) and Blazin Fiddles, Tabache (ORourke), and Greens collaborations with Eliza Carthy and Colin Steele. Their debut recording, Lightweights & Gentlemen, was a fine collection that highlighted the trios exquisite playing and Drevers fine singing voice.
