Shamblestone is an entertaining multi-instrumentalist folk duo from North-East Fife. Growing up together around a strong traditional music scene, the duo is rooted predominantly in the Scottish tradition, and now mold these influences into their own unique arrangements and compositions which integrate wider influences from global traditional and contemporary spheres. The two first started playing together in 2008 as part of folk trio Three’s A Crowd (Cambridge Folk Festival 2013 Youth Hub Band Artists) and have performed across the UK ever since. The duo competed as Semi-Finalists in the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards 2017 and have performed in venues and festivals such as Eden Festival 2016, Edinburgh Fringe 2017/2018, Solas 2018, Dunfermline Folk Club, Wighton Centre, Verdant Works, Hospitalfield House, Dundee Acoustic Music Club, Islington Folk Club and The Green Note.
