Jenna Reid

Born & bred in Quarff, Shetland, Jenna learned fiddle under the watchful eye of the late Willie Hunter.

As a finalist of the prestigious Paul Hamlyn Composition Award, her 5th solo album ‘Working Hands’ is a stunning collection of her writing where she is joined by Mr McFall’s Chamber, Harris Playfair, Iain Sandilands & Stuart Semple.  As a soloist Jenna has been awarded ‘Best Up and Coming Artist’ at the Scots Trad Music Awards and nominated as ‘Best Instrumentalist’.  Furthermore her work with RANT and Blazin’ Fiddles has achieved recognition from the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and The Scots Trad Music Awards.

Jenna is a keen educator and has taught fiddle at workshops and festivals all over the world.
