The instruments featured in their line up include fiddle, whistle, guitar, highland and border bagpipes, bouzouki and keyboards.

Barluath feature an outstanding young singer in Ainsley Hamill who has a stunning and powerful voice.

The other members are Eilidh Firth on fiddle, Colin Greeves on Highland and lowland pipes and whistle, Edward Seaman on guitar and bouzouki, together with Alastair Iain Paterson on keyboards.

Eilidh has been the principal violinist of the National Youth String Orchestra of Scotland and leader of the Tayside Young Fiddlers, a role that has sparked a love of traditional music.

Everyone is welcome at Montrose Folk Club for a great night of Scottish and contemporary songs and music from one of Scotland’s best young folk bands. The doors at the Links Hotel open at 7.30 p.m.
