Described by Folk Radio as ‘refreshingly contemporary’, Glasgow-based trio Assynt are aiming to lift their audience to dizzying heights when they perform at Bendeloch’s Victory Hall on Friday, July 5.

Former BBC Radio Scotland Young Musician of the Year finalists, Graham Mackenzie (fiddle) and David Shedden (pipes/whistles) alongside BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award winner Innes White (guitar/mandolin) make up the band who won ‘Up and Coming Artist of the Year’ at the Scots Trad Music Awards 2018.

Having performed together for many years, 2018 saw the official launch of the band and their debut album ‘Road to the North’. Predominantly compiled of self-penned tunes, the album draws upon influences from traditional Scottish fiddle and pipe music, in particular the Highland and Gaelic traditions.
