‘This band looks to be developing fast into a major player in the
national and international Celtic music scene.’ (DbDbD, New York)
A dynamic quartet of fiddle,flute, guitar and percussion, Gnoss tackles
energetic tune sets and driving folk song with a ‘maturity of ability
many of a greater age will envy’ (The Living Tradition).
Current and former students at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland,
Graham Rorie, Aidan Moodie, Connor Sinclair and Craig Baxter have been
tipped as “ones to watch” by Songlines magazine, for their lively,
engaging and honest performances.
The band originally formed in 2015, as a duo of Graham and Aidan, who
had grown up playing traditional music together in Orkney. After winning
a prestigious Danny Kyle Award at Celtic Connections, and reaching the
semi-finals of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award in 2016, they released
their self-titled debut album. Now a four-piece, the boys released two
singles – Waves and The Silver Fox – early in 2017, a year that also saw
them nominated for Up and Coming Artist of the Year at the MG Alba Scots
Trad Music Awards.
Following the release of their EP, Brother Wind in 2018, Gnoss will
release and tour their hotly anticipated new album in time for Tradfest
Part of Tradfest 2019.
