Vibrant six-piece Heisk are a powerful new force on the Scottish folk scene, boasting a trad-based, but distinctly 21st-century style.

Orkney Folk Festival regulars will recognise Sally Simpson and Catriona Hawksworth - Open Stage winners in 2012. They are joined by Becca Skeoch, Lauen Macdonald, Megan MacDonald, and Rosie Munro
