Biography

Orkney, Scotland

Saltfishforty are Douglas Montgomery (fiddle/viola) and Brian Cromarty (guitar/mandola/vocals).

Combining the traditional music of Orkney, Scotland, with original compositions, they released their debut album, Goose Music, to critical acclaim in May 2003. In 2004 the duo were nominated in the ‘up and coming artist of the year’ category at the BBC Scottish Traditional Music Awards. Their second album, Orkney Twister, was released in December 2005.

Their reputation as a fresh and dynamic live act has seen them established on the Scottish festival scene, and taken them to festivals in Spain, France, England, Ireland, Belgium, Norway, USA and Canada, including two trips to the Cannes film festival, a week in Austin, Texas and an appearance at the 2008 Celtic Colours festival in Cape Breton.

A third Saltfishforty album is in preproduction and will be released early in 2009.
