Graham Rorie and Aidan Moodie are two of the most promising young musicians to recently emerge from Orkney's rich heritage of traditional music.

With a presence that's both familiar and forward-thinking, Graham and Aidan's playful arrangements are brought to life by a musical relationship almost a decade in the making. The pair perform traditional tunes (both from "up home" in Orkney and further afield), self-penned numbers, and contemporary folk songs through an intimate combination of fiddle, guitar, mandolin, and voice.

In 2015, the boys won a coveted Danny Kyle Award at Celtic Connections, also reaching the semi-finals of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award the following year. Following this, they went on to form the four-piece folk band Gnoss - recently nominated for an MG Alba "Up And Coming" award at the 2017 Trad Awards.

The boys have recently graduated with first class honours from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland's BMUS in Traditional Music.

"Aidan and Graham are superb musicians, not only that, they combine as a superb duo." - Folk Radio UK Graham and Aidan joined Live Music Now Scotland in 2018.
