Balter are a contemporary folk quartet who have emerged from the music scene in Newcastle. Leaning heavily towards their shared love of Scottish music, they combine traditional and original material with percussive step-dance to create a high energy, driven sound which complements and stretches their traditional influences. The interplay between two fiddles, mandolin and accordion generates a distinctive sound which explores new textures; gelled together with intricate arrangements.
Vibrant six-piece HEISK are a powerful new force on the folk scene. Their relentlessly energetic music stems from their roots in Scottish traditional music and combines it with punchy riffs and grooves.
