Eriska is a six-piece Glasgow-based folk band established in 2016. The band’s line up includes members from the traditional music, jazz, and classical courses at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. The members draw upon their disparate backgrounds and combine rock, jazz and folk styles to create a unique sound using both traditional tunes and band members’ original compositions. With musicians from Argentina, Italy and the USA as well as Scotland, they blend many musical traditions together to make a fresh kind of Scottish music. In January, the band was awarded a Highly Commended at The Danny Kyle Open Stage 2017 at Celtic Connections. Following from this, Eriska was invited to perform on STV Glasgow’s Live at Five show and have their music played on RTE Radio Ireland. The band look forward to playing at Eden Festival, Bute Festival, Piping Live! and Mull of Kintyre festival this year!
