Venue: Acoustic Music Centre, Ukrainian Club, Edinburgh, Scotland
This year Edinburgh hosts the 70th iteration of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (EFF), showcasing music and theatre from most regions of the world. Gnoss…this young band, however, hasn’t had far to travel: original members Graham Rorie (fiddle, mandolin) and Aidan Moodie (guitar, vocals) both from the Orkney Islands, nowadays augmented by Connor Sinclair (flute, whistle) and Gregor Kincaid (bodhran). Together they present a highly accomplished, charming and well – paced one hour set, demonstrating a maturity in their play significantly beyond what might be expected from their relative youth.
