Kevin Henderson, one of the most exciting young fiddlers on the world stage, has just released a new album titled Fin da Laand Ageen. You would think Kevin was a lot older than he is with his lengthy track record of collaborations as well as being a member of some of most well known Celtic music bands around. He has been a member of Fiddlers’ Bid, since 1991; Boys of the Lough, since 2002; Session A9, since 2004; The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc, since 2009 and Shetland/Norway trio, Aamos since 2009. He has been featured on no less than 15 albums and has appeared on television and radio programs worldwide, including the BBC and many appearances on Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion” on National Public Radio in America.
Fin Da Laand Ageen is an old Shetland expression meaning “to arrive back home”.
I decided to make an album of purely traditional Shetland tunes as im finding the older I get its the music I am going back to more and more. I was delighted to have Mattias [Perez] on the cd and also to have his wife Nina on fiddle join us for a track.
