Traditional Irish Music
Malinky are presently featuring as artist of the month on Scotland’s Hands Up For Trad. “Since forming out of the Edinburgh session scene of the late ’90s they have for the past 15 years, been the leading group focusing on traditional Scots song. With four acclaimed albums under their belt and an extensive tour roster across the globe, they have become one of the most distinctive and accomplished bands on the Scottish folk scene. 2015 finds the band emerging refreshed and renewed from an enforced touring and recording hiatus in recent years with their highly anticipated new release, Far Better Days.”
Their current four-piece line-up, centred on the outstanding voices of Fiona Hunter, Steve Byrne, and Mark Dunlop also features award-winning composer Mike Vass, with instrumentation including bouzouki, guitar, fiddle, whistle, bodhrán and cello.
The Bonnie Hoose o Airlie is from Belle Stewart – one example of the bands commitment to and expertise in the songs of Scotland’s Travellers.
