About Jenna Reid and Harris Playfair, with Mr McFall’s Chamber

One of Shetland’s finest and most accomplished modern-day fiddlers, Jenna Reid is joined by long-time accompanist Harris Playfair, and the genre-defying string ensemble Mr McFall’s Chamber in a sumptuous double-bill of musical mastery.

Released in early 2019, Working Hands is Reid’s fourth studio album, featuring predominantly original compositions, inspired by lessons she took with Robert McFall, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra’s second violinist and leader of the revered ensemble bearing his name. Such was the connection and influence, many of the featured compositions are dedicated to the quartet and individual musicians – who not only went on to feature on the album, but now join her on tour for select spring dates.

Jenna will also be reunited with one of Scotland’s most highly regarded traditional pianists, Harris Playfair – an electric pairing, brilliantly captured on her five-star Live in Shetland record – offering a selection of traditional material, ahead of joining the McFall’s ensemble.

Six pairs of working hands, whose owners approach that work with enthusiasm and sheer love of the craft of making music.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Jenna Reid and Harris Playfair, with Mr McFall’s Chamber are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
