COCKEREL IN THE CREEL

Combining years of experience playing with bands such as Blazin' Fiddles and Cliar, multi-instrumentalists, and stalwarts of the traditional music world, Iain MacFarlane & Ingrid Henderson create a sound which is reflective of the stunning, culture-rich Lochaber area they grew up in. Based mainly on harp and fiddle, and mixing traditional and newly written material, they combine rousing marches, jigs and reels with poignant slow airs of love and loss, giving the listener a unique insight into the rich history and music of the West Highlands.

Iain and Ingrid

“Together these musical stalwarts create a stunning sound, reflective of the beautiful,
culture-rich West Highlands that continue to shape them”
Based mainly on fiddle and harp they combine years of performing experience and a genuine love and understanding of the tradition to produce a sound which leaves you enriched and enlightened.
They bring an absolute joy to their live performances, complementing each others musical attributes with intuitive musicality. Stories & anecdotes about the melodies and humorous recollections enhance MacFarlane & Henderson’s superbly fluent, always expressive and engaging music.
”Always a treat for the ears and the soul”
