We asked Holli of Rumskee a few questions about the band.
Tell us about your band
Rumskee are a band formed of 5 members between the ages of 18-22 with a line up of fiddle, pipes/whistles, keys, vocals/guitar and bass. Formed in 2018 after meeting through the Argyll Ceilidh Trail, they come from all over Argyll and aim to create a unique sound embedded in their west-coast trad roots. They play a mixture of their own compositions and arrangements of traditional tunes to showcase young Scottish music.
Who are the band members
Emma Baird – Vocals/Guitar
Ruaridh Litster-Campbell – Keyboard
Andrew Mcallister – Bass
Kate MacPherson – Whistles/Small Pipes/Highland Pipes
Holli Scott – Fiddle
What are you hopes and aspirations for the band?
We released an EP last year and would love to expand our recorded material and release an album. We also would like to continue gigging further afield to promote the neo-traditional Scottish music genre.
