"THESE THREE GIFTED YOUNG WOMEN HAVE MODESTLY YET CONFIDENTLY STEPPED INTO THEIR OWN NICHE TO OFFER THEIR OWN TAKE ON INSTRUMENTAL FOLK MUSIC"
JERRY SIMONS, STIRRINGS MAGAZINE
The Barber Sisters are a fiddle/viola trio based in Derbyshire, England. Classically trained but with a love of Scottish fiddle music, twins Isobel and Lydia (violin) and older sister Ellie (violin/viola) play arrangements of both traditional and contemporary tunes from Scotland and beyond, as well as original compositions.
In 2015 they reached the semi-final of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award, and the following year released their debut album, "Lover's Leap", which takes its name from a local landmark near their home in the Peak District. Since then they have also been a part of the Fatea Showcase Session for Winter 2016 and appeared on singer Rosie Hood's album "The Beautiful & The Actual".
"horribly young and talented"
