The name Cantrip is an Old Scots word meaning a charm, magic spell or piece of mischief andit aptly describes the unexpected twists and turns in their musical arrangements, likewise the compelling potency of their musicianship. Swirling border pipes, raging fiddle, thunderous guitarand three rich voices blend to create a sound energetic enough to tear the roof off. Echoes canbe heard of trad music from the 1960s and 70s, but the years have slowly infested their music with the sounds of funk, metal, bluegrass, swing, and even klezmer.
