Marit Fält and Rona Wilkie
Marit Fält and Rona Wilkie meld tunes and songs to create a new music that’s uplifting, daring and harmonious. They explore the similarities between Scandinavian and Scottish Highland tunes – colouring them with songs from both traditions. But this isn’t academia. Marit and Rona’s music is playful, borderless and thrilling. It glides from evocative near-classical movements through elegant polskas to buoyant reels, brought to life by Rona’s Gaelic singing, multi-personality fiddle virtuosity and Marit’s breath-taking mastery of the versatile låtmandola. This duo are well known as virtuosic instrumentalists – Rona Wilkie is a winner of the BBC Young Traditional Musician and their debut album “Turas” was met to rave reviews. As such, they have striven to collaborate with musicians of all stripes, and have played across many genres – from playing with rappers to string quartets, from the Basque Country to the Balkans. They have also made a name for themselves as composers, having been commissioned to write for films and festivals.
