“Renowned for its strong melodies, earthy songs and majestic instrumental flair and driven by the dynamic playing of Highland harpist and composer Rachel Hair, The Rachel Hair Trio is completed by elegant double bass from Cameron Maxwell and strong rhythm and vocals from singer-guitarist Jenn Butterworth.

They have released two well received albums the most recent being the aptly titled Trì (Gaelic for three). “Three stringed instruments expertly balanced with each other, finely contrasting in tone and bursting with melodic energy.” – Jim Gilchrist, The Scotsman.
