SHOOGLENIFTY
Shooglenifty was formed in Edinburgh 26 years ago at the height of the late 80s/early 90s electronic dance music scene. The vibe of that time and the extraordinary melting pot of musical styles that comes from being based in a small city, are key influences on their sound.

This pioneering band is in demand all over the world and the guys have entertained at festivals and venues in Australia, Canada, India, Japan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Russia, the United States and, of course, Europe.

Their 7th studio album The Untied Knot was released in 2015 to much critical acclaim - they were part of the Top of the World selection in August's Songlines and received a 5* review.

The Shoogles are currently working on their 8th album, The High Road to Jodhpur, which will be a collaboration with Dhun Dhora, a group of 8 master musicians from Rajasthan. The two bands will play a big showcase concert at Celtic Connections in January and launch the album at Jodhpur Riff in October 2017. A documentary film about the collaboration is currently in production.

Shooglenifty and Dhun Dhora are available for festival bookings in 2017 (and beyond!).

KAELA ROWAN BAND
Acclaimed Scottish singer Kaela Rowan released The Fruited Thorn, her second solo album in August 2016. Gaining excellent reviews including a 5* rating in fRoots, the album is a collection of traditional Scottish and Irish ballads sung in Gaelic, Scots and English.

Kaela will be appearing at Celtic Connections in January 2017 with her regular band - James Mackintosh (guitar, percussion), and Ewan MacPherson (guitar, mandolin, jaw harp) plus guest musicians Patsy Reid (fiddle), Jarlath Henderson (pipes, whistles, vocals), Dayam Khan Manganiyar (vocals) and Ewen Vernal (bass).

STRING SISTERS
Combining the very considerable talents of six of the world's top fiddlers – Annbjørg Lien (Norway), Catriona Macdonald (Shetland), Emma Härdelin (Sweden), Liz Carroll (United States), Liz Knowles (United States) and Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh (Ireland) – the String Sisters blends Celtic and Nordic traditions into a glorious riot of all-encompassing sound.

Following their only 2016 appearance at Tønder Festival in August, String Sisters will reconvene to record their second album in June 2017. North American and European album launches are at the planning stage but we expect Canada in October 2017 and Scotland in January 2018. The band will also be available for festival appearances globally and tour from Summer 2017 onwards.

GRAEME STEPHEN
Graeme Stephen is an award-winning composer and jazz guitarist based in Edinburgh. His most recent work is a new score for the Fritz Lang silent film Metropolis, which debuted at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2016. Featuring the composer on guitar, acclaimed Dutch string quartet Zapp-4, and Tom Bancroft on drums, the piece received a 4 * review in The Scotsman and is currently booking for festivals in Spring/Summer 2017.

Graeme also performs his own scores to other classic 1920s silent films: Nosferatu, Sunrise, The Cabinet of Dr Caligari and The Navigator.

He composes for and performs with Graeme Stephen Trio (with Tom Bancroft and bassist Mario Caribé) and the Playtime Quartet (the trio plus Martin Kershaw on saxophone).

Recent CD releases include Films (his scores for Nosferatu and Sunrise) and Distances (with Zapp-4).
