“Gnoss is the award-winning project from Graham Rorie and Aidan Moodie; two Orcadian musicians currently studying traditional music at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow.
Blending fiddle, guitar, voice and mandolin, the boys tackle energetic tune sets and driving folk song with a “maturity of ability many of a greater age will envy” (Living Tradition)
Forming as a duo in 2015, Gnoss started their career by winning a prestigious Danny Kyle Award at Celtic Connections. Since then, they reached the Semi-Finals of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award (2016), performed at the Royal Albert Hall as part of Music For Youth’s Proms, and brought out their well-received first album ‘Gnoss’ (“A promising and engaging debut.” – Songlines). They’ve also supported acts such as Sharon Shannon, Blazin’ Fiddles, Seth Lakeman, Liz Carroll and more.
Gnoss have recently expanded into a four-piece, marked by the release of their debut single ‘Waves’ (“You couldn’t ask for a nicer sounding single” – Folk Radio UK). This intimate performance at Skaill House marks a rare chance to catch the boys as their acclaimed duo.”
