Belt Hid Oot

Making their third Orkney Folk Festival appearance, Belt Hid Oot are a band of young musicians from the West Mainland of Orkney, formed and tutored by music teacher and fiddle player, Laura Eunson.

They began as a small group with a shared love of traditional music, getting together at the end of the week to ‘play a few tunes’, and, over the four years since, have naturally developed into a fine young band.  They released their debut album last year - a result of the talent, enthusiasm and dedication shown by the youngsters.  The music they play demonstrates their ability with a variety of instrumentation and styles, from traditional Orcadian, Scottish, Irish, Scandinavian and even some tunes written by the musicians themselves.
