The first tune is a 3-part slow, pipe reel and the second tune was written for Patsy’s Swedish mandola-playing friend, Marit Fält. This track features Patsy on fiddle and viola, Ewan MacPherson on guitar, Ben Nicholls on double bass, Fraser Fifield on soprano saxophone, Signy Jakobsdóttor on percussion, Mattie Foulds on kit and Mhairi Hall on piano.
In the last couple of years the former Breabach fiddle player and singer Patsy Reid, has become one of the most in-demand folk musicians in the UK.
In February 2014, she released her 3rd solo album, The Brightest Path, which was rapturously received at her Celtic Connections launch. Other recent highlights include performing alongside Dougie Maclean and Kylie Minogue at the 2014 Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony and with Zakir Hussain at the London 2012 Olympic Festival.
