The Shetland Islands, which lie in far Northern Scotland, has it’s colorful history heavily influenced by both Scandinavia (particularly Norway), and mainland Scotland. The band is comprised of 8 members playing fiddles, guitar, cello, accordion and piano. Two of the members, Carla Carnegie and Arvid Lundin, are cousins whose grandparents immigrated from Sweden, and between their 2 families, Scandinavian and Celtic music have been mainstays of their musical diet. It is Muckle Roe’s pleasure to bring music to the audience, in which one can hear the influence of Norway, Sweden and Denmark, as well as Scotland.
