Acclaimed fiddler Kevin Henderson to release new album

Acclaimed Shetland fiddle musician Kevin Henderson is to release a new album in early July.

Henderson, who lives in Norway, has collaborated with US pianist Neil Pearlman to bring together the album, Burden Lake.

Though Pearlman is best-known as a jazz pianist, Henderson insisted the new release was very much a collection of traditional tunes, written and recorded by the pair following a tour of America in January 2019.

“Neil comes from a very diverse background,” Henderson said.

“He’s predominantly a jazz pianist but he has a huge understanding of music.”
