Biography

Featuring a multinational line-up from Scotland, Ireland and Canada, The Outside Track plays cutting edge modern traditional music reminiscent of early Solas with a Canadian singer and a hint of the Poozies with the occasional bluesy edge.

The Outside Track boasts an award-winning line-up of Ailie Robertson on clarsach (BBC Radio Scotland Young Trad finalist 2007), Norah Rendell on vocals and flute (Canadian Trad Singer of the Year nominee 2008), Fiona Black on accordion (FAME academy bursary recipient 2007), Cillian O’Dalaigh on guitar and stepdance and Mairi Rankin on fiddle, vocals and setpdance.

All members of The Outside Track are instrumentalists, arrangers and composers in their own right. Since meeting in Limerick in 2005, their sound has developed into a unique sonic fusion of harp, guitar and accordion bass accompaniment coupled with intricate interplay between fiddle, flute and harmony vocals. These “inspired arrangements” draw on diverse material from classic ballads, new songs, self-penned originals and traditional instrumentals from their native countries.
