Celtic Connections.

One of Shetland’s finest and most accomplished modern-day fiddlers, Jenna Reid’s quicksilver musicality and melodic sensitivity are a prominent feature in leading Scottish group Blazin’ Fiddles, and particularly highlighted in her long-standing, mutually inspiring, duo partnership with fellow Shetlander, pianist Harris Playfair. Sparks fly when these two masterful players connect, now brilliantly showcased on their long-awaited duo record, One Day, released in 2023. 


So-called as all the recording took place in just one day, in summer 2022, One Day captures the unparalleled musical relationship between two of Scotland’s finest, virtuosic traditional musicians. Reid’s sixth album, it follows 2019’s acclaimed, Working Hands - composed and recorded in collaboration with genre-defying string quartet Mr McFall’s Chamber, alongside Playfair - and the masterful Live in Shetland (2015).
