The Halton Quartet comprises the collective talents within two of Scotland's most innovative and captivating duos Angus Lyon/Ruaridh Campbell, and Wingin' It. This pair of duos have fused into the most exciting new foursome on the Celtic/folk/fusion scene with mesmerising musicianship and loads of personality. Two guitars, one fiddle and one accordion produce a wide range of toe-tapping tunes and showmanship. Dubbed "The best new band on the block" the Halton Quartet make music which is both rich in tradition and boldly forward-looking, with arrangements that expand and develop melodic ideas with imagination, subtlety and brio. Influenced by Argentinean tango master Astor Piazzolla, the European classical school, New York jazz and Scottish tune forms - this is music with genuine heart and soul.

The ancient folklore tradition of ‘buying the wind' was common across Caithness and the fishing routes of the North Atlantic. The tradition involved sailors purchasing 3 knots of thread, rope or fabric, to be undone as wind is required, but the mariner is instructed on no account to untie the third knot, as it may start a hurricane.
