TO mark the launch of their debut album, The Halton Quartet are playing four dates in Scotland, including an appearance in Biggar tonight (Thursday).

The Halton Quartet may be more familiar to audiences as Angus Lyon and Ruaridh Campbell, and Wingin’ It.

The four met on board the motor vessel Halton during the 2007 Orkney Folk Festival.

Angus and Ruaridh are regarded as one of Scotland’s most creative fiddle and accordion duos, racking up numerous accolades for their 2006 release, 18 Months Later.

In January 2010, they appeared at Celtic Connections, in Glasgow, alongside the 10-times Grammy award winner and world-renowned vocalist, Bobby McFerrin.

Adam Bulley and Chas Mackenzie formed Wingin’ It in 2004, and have since picked up a Danny Kyle Award at Celtic Connections.

The Halton Quartet perform for Clydesdale Folk Club in the Corn Exchange at 7.30pm. Tickets are £10 or £8 concessions, phone 01899 221225 for more information.
