Hailing from Scotland, Ireland and Cape Breton, the five members of The Outside Track are united by a love of traditional music and a commitment to creating new music on its foundation. Using fiddle, accordion, harp, guitar, flute, step-dance and vocals these five virtuosos blend boundless energy with unmistakable joie de vivre.
Each player within The Outside Track is a master of their chosen instrument with the band stacking up an impressive number of international awards. This amount of talent alone would be enough to recommend the band but in this case the result is so much greater than the sum of the parts.
The line-up comprises Teresa Horgan, Mairi Rankin (Beolach), Ailie Robertson (Live Ireland Winner,,BBC Young Trad Finalist), Fiona Black (BBC Fame Academy Winner), and Michael Ferrie.
