Oakes, Bews, Thorpe – OBT

When ‘BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2010’ winning fiddler Daniel Thorpe and contemporary fiddle visionary Jon Bews met metronomic, guitarist + flautist Tom Oakes (Album of the year 2017 nominee for ‘Fiddle +Guitar’ with Ross Couper) OBT was born and a no holds barred approach to music was the key. Tradition underpins OBT but with an understanding that no contemporary influence be left behind. Bass heavy riffs, chamber like strings and award winning traditional playing make OBT a journey from Strathspey to Space and back.
