Broken Strings are a young, multi instrumental, six-piece band that hail from Orkney. After winning the open stage event at Orkney Folk Festival, they went on to win a coveted Danny Kyle award at Celtic Connections in January 2011. They have since been in great demand both at home in Orkney, and further afield, recently appearing at the Scottish Fiddle Festival in Edinburgh. Their debut album Halda is an exciting mix of tunes, ranging from haunting traditional slow airs to foot stomping jigs and reels and includes many of their own compositions. Broken Strings build their sound from an array of instruments including fiddles, accordion, cajon, border pipes, banjo, mandolin and guitar.
