Top Floor Taivers
Hailing from Scotland, England and Ireland, Top Floor Taivers combine stunning vocals with piano, fiddle and clarsach (harp) to create unique arrangements of traditional folk songs and tunes as well as their own compositions. With singer Claire Hastings on ukulele, Tina Jordan Rees on Piano, Gráinne Brady on fiddle, and Heather Downie on clarsach, the girls add to the vocals with rich instrumentals and a driving rhythm fueled by piano and clarsach. The song based four-piece collaborated in 2013 whilst all living in Glasgow, recording a four track EP in the summer of 2014.

"The tracks [on their EP] are testament to their fine musicianship and singing as well that fine musical institution."
