Fiddler Reid to make first live recording
Highly-acclaimed Shetland fiddler Jenna Reid has announced she will be recording a live album at her concert in Mareel on Saturday 28th June.
The recording of the concert, presented by Shetland Arts, will capture Reid on stage as she plays in three special duos – showcasing her work as a soloist, accompanied by guitarist Kevin Mackenzie, pianist Harris Playfair, and her sister, and fellow fiddler, Bethany Reid.
Since releasing her debut solo album, and being awarded Best Up and Coming Artist and nominated as Best Instrumentalist at the Scot Trad Music Awards, Jenna has been in high demand as a performer and tutor.
Jenna said: “I’m really excited to be performing and recording a live album in Mareel. It’s the first time I’ve played a solo concert in Shetland in a few years and the first time for me as a soloist in Mareel.
“This is also my first ever live recording and the first time my touring duos are highlighted.”
