Scottish Fish

Scottish Fish

Scottish Fish present a fresh take on traditional and contemporary Scottish and Cape Breton music. Their lively and unique arrangements are woven together from session music handed down from generations of the tradition’s finest players. They have performed at the Boston Celtic Music Festival, the Bellingham Celtic Festival, Club Passim, and at various other public and private venues across the United States. Their music and performances have earned them features on WGBH, KALW, and in American Girl and Folkworld Magazines; attracted the attention of programs such as America’s Got Talent; and secured an international audience of over two hundred thousand followers on Instagram.

Scottish Fish have been named as “one of the most energetic and creative acts to take root in the local Celtic music scene this century” by Boston Irish reporter Sean Smith, and Scottish Fiddler Hanneke Cassel has described their sound as “both incredibly musical, and just a little unusual.” “Individually they are all creative and talented,” writes Cassel, “and together they spark each other, pushing each other even further to make amazing music.”

HISTORY

After discovering Scottish fiddle individually as kids, the five of us met at Boston Harbor Scottish Fiddle School in 2011. Whether it was through the UU church, school, or previous music camps, some of us had already known each other for a number of years. However, once we all ended up at BHSFS, we as a group were immediately inseparable.

Beginning that first year, it became a camp tradition to hoard candy under our beds and pillows. Among our favorite treats were Swedish Fish, and, when thinking of a name for our Ceilidh band, we thought it would be hilarious to call ourselves the Scottish Fish. Keep in mind, Maggie was 6 years old at the time, and the rest of us were 11. For better or for worse, the name stuck. Two years later, we played our first gig outside of camp and absolutely loved it.
