Boreas are: Rachel Newton (The Shee, Furrow Collective) – clàrsach/Gaelic song, Britt Pernille Frøholm (Maar, Face The Bear) – hardanger fiddle, Lori Watson – fiddle/Scots song, and Irene Tillung (Tindra, Maar) – accordion.
Boreas began as a collaboration between Lori, from the Scottish Borders, and Britt, from Hornindal in Sogn og Fjordane, Norway. We have a passion for new and experimental music, creating a new expression based on Norwegian and Scottish folk music. Boreas seek to emphasize old musical traditions and shared musical aspects, while exploring the spaces between our unique, yet connected, cultures.
