Douglas Montgomery and Brian Cromarty - jointly known as Orkney power duo, Saltfishforty - have won a devoted following throughout the UK and beyond, brilliantly transcending the duo format’s conventional confines.

Linchpin figures in Orkney’s traditional music, they unite these deep-rooted sources with an exhilarating breadth of influence and expertise, catalysed by a creative empathy born from decades of friendship. The result is a sound of equally thrilling raw attack and multi-dimensional richness.

Across nearly 15 years performing together, Douglas (fiddle/viola) and Brian (songs/guitar/mandola) have delighted audiences at many of the world’s top folk festivals, with their focus on traditional Orkney music boldly cross-fertilised with influences from Americana to East European folk, plus a high-octane whiff of heavy metal.

Their fifth, as yet to be named, album is due for release in spring 2017.
