Young traditional musician of the year finalist 2022, Malin is joined by acclaimed musicians Luc McNally (Dosca, Snuffbox) on Bouzouki and Sally Simpson (Heisk, Westward the Light) on Fiddle.

Their music is inspired by everything they are exposed to in life.

Recently Malin has been studying folk music in Helsinki and learning the tradition of the extinct Finnish Bagpipes as well as writing and performing music for ‘The strange Undoing of Prudencia Heart’ at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester.

Their sound has been described as ‘Beautiful and raw’ and ‘a breath of fresh air’.
