Kinnaris : a mythological, traditional symbol of feminine grace and accomplishment, a celestial musician, depicted as half-woman, half-bird, renowned for her music, song, dance and poetry. Fiona MacAskill (fiddle), Laura Wilkie (fiddle), Aileen Reid (5 string fiddle), Laura-Beth Salter (mandolin) and Jenn Butterworth (guitar) collectively make ‘Kinnaris Quintet’.

Living in Glasgow has brought these 5 musicians together and what makes Kinnaris Quintet’s dynamic and compelling sound is the marriage of their diverse musical backgrounds, influences and styles. Meddling between new compositions, traditional Scottish and Irish, Bluegrass, Old-Time and Classical music, their musical styles form a sound which is uplifting, honest and powerful.
