Jennifer and Hazel Wrigley are an international folk music duo playing fiddle (Jennifer) and guitar/piano (Hazel). Born in Orkney (a group of islands just off the north coast of Scotland), they started to play when given instruments on their 8th birthday and joined the Strathspey and Reel Society in their early years. In their early teens they were playing, often with Emma their older sister, at local concerts and ceilidhs around Orkney where they were spotted by Orkney’s only recording studio who launched them into Dancing Fingers their first album.

The success of this album moved them into the UK folk circuit but this proved arduous (Cornwall to Middlesbrough in back-to-back gigs) and eventually they moved to Edinburgh after launching their second album The Watch Stone.

Playing at London’s Barbican Centre in 1995, they were spotted by a New Zealand music scout who invited them to play at the Auckland Folk Festival which prompted the twins to organise a “world tour”. At about that time Jennifer won the UK’s premier accolade for new folk talent (BBC Young Tradition Award) which helped boost the tour and their international reputation. Working without a manager, they organised a second world tour in 1999 and issued a third album Huldreland (in the Folk Roots top ten of 1998). Four transatlantic trips in 1999 cemented their place on the international folk scene.

In 2001 they issued an album “Skyran” wearing jewellery designed by Sheila Fleet.
