The Wilderness Yet combines the acclaimed talents of folksinger Rosie Hodgson, traditional fiddler Rowan Piggott, and guitarist-flautist Philippe Barnes. Independently, they have earned audiences’ esteem as consummate musicians; together, they weave an eclectic tapestry of traditional and original songs and tunes; from a cappella three-part harmonies to luscious instrumental arrangements.

Alastair Caplin and Ewan Macdonald have been playing Gaelic songs and Highland fiddle tunes together with delicacy and fire for nearly a decade.

Fiddle player and multi-instrumentalist Ewan Macdonald plays the music of the Highlands of Scotland, where he grew up, and Appalachian Old Time, its close relative from across the Atlantic. He performs with the 12-piece folk group Band of Burns alongside Alastair Caplin and in groups including Root and Branch and the Idumea Quartet. 

With his fiddle playing described as “Exquisite, passionate playing” (Scotsman) and his film composing as “Extraordinary” (The Times) and “One to look out for, a rising star” (Howard Goodall, Classic FM), Alastair Caplin has already made a heavy impact on the UK music scene since his emergence as a professional musician
