Since forming in 2017, the Anglo-Irish all-female quintet have become festival sensations across the UK, Europe and Australasia, toured regularly at home and released a critically-lauded debut album. They are also the first British act nominated for an award by the International Bluegrass Music Association.

Their lineup boasts Leanne Thorose, with her powerhouse vocals and mandolin; the virtuoso banjo playing of Tabitha Benedict; Eleanor Wilkie and her solid bass grooves; Laura Carrivick on both fiddle and dobro; and the lightning guitar playing of Charlotte Carrivick.

Tickets £15. Book online: https://assemblyfestival.com/box office or call 0131 623 30
