Lighting up the stage with joy and verve has always been Shooglenifty’s modus operandi, but with their new fiddler, in the shape of pint-sized fireball Eilidh Shaw, they’ve upped the ante. Formed in 1990 by musicians from the Scottish Highlands, Orkney and Edinburgh, the group’s bright spark was the idea of fusing traditional and traditional-sounding melodies with the beats and basslines of a mixed bag of more contemporary influences.
Fresh from some high-profile appearances, including a show at the Edinburgh International Festival, the band is on sparkling form.
