Eilidh Shaw (fiddle and vocals) and Ross Martin (guitar) are probably best known for their work with two top traditional bands; Eilidh with The Poozies and Ross with Daimh, although some may recall the 2000s when they made up two-fifths of the cult folk explosion that was Harem Scarem.
Originally from the small west coast villages of Taynuilt and Arisaig, they have been at the heart of the Scottish Music scene for over 20 years, touring the world both with their own groups and as guest artists with a vast array of top performers.
In 2017 they made their first album together, Birl-esque, which was released on their own Rhubana Records label to critical acclaim. Since the album release and the launch of their duo project they have toured Scotland, the U.S., France and Germany, and performed at the Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow.
The 2020’s have required them to take on alternative career paths as a fisherman and a music teacher but they have also found some time to work on a 2nd duo album from their home in Morar, which they are looking forward to releasing and touring over the next few months.
