Crossbow Trio started as a study group for fiddle nerds.
Essentially, the band still is, with rehearsals incorporating large amounts of tea drinking and life debriefing and concluding with the allocation of transcribing homework.
With very firm roots in in traditional Scottish music, the trio explores the many links to other fiddle styles, as band members are also well respected in bluegrass, old time, jazz and Swedish music communities. As active contributors to the contemporary traditional music scene in Glasgow, members of Crossbow Trio can regularly be seen performing all over Scotland and the world.
Featuring Laura Wilkie (Kinnaris Quintet, Fatsuit, Claire Hastings), Sally Simpson (Heisk, Westward the Light, Hannah Rarity) and Jeri Foreman (Swamp Chicken, Astro Cobalt), Crossbow Trio are one of the new Scottish acts to watch.
