Ewan MacPherson and Amy Henderson

Ewan MacPherson is a renowned singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer based in Scotland. He has made significant contributions to the music industry as a founding member of the alt-folk trio Salt House and the innovative "Nu-Nordic" Quartet Fribo. Ewan's thirteen years of touring with Acid-Croft pioneers Shooglenifty have further showcased his musical prowess and he is furthering his solo work with his new project Hushman.

Amy Henderson is a highly skilled accordionist and singer known for her captivating performances in the Scottish traditional music scene. Amy's talent shines through at festivals, concerts and ceilidhs, with critics praising her as "a joy to listen to" (Fatea).


Dàna are a new and exciting all-female band in their final year studying traditional music at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. The band's name, meaning 'bold' or 'audacious' in Gaelic, perfectly encapsulates their vibrant sound and approach to performance. Dàna have spent the past few years creating music together, bringing music from each of their respective home areas - Knoydart, Oban, Campbeltown, Edinburgh and Wales. Being immersed in the Glasgow traditional music scene, the girls are driven and eagerly anticipate introducing their traditional and folk arrangements to a wider audience in the coming months. The band consists of fiddle, clarsach, piano, whistle and bagpipes.
