Eva Väljaots & Robbie Sherratt

 

Estonian kannel player Eva Väljaots and Staffordshire fiddler Robbie Sherratt write and perform music rooted in song and dance of the previous centuries. Sharing an affinity for improvisation, they particularly enjoy creating new variations and arrangements at the drop of a hat. Currently they are master’s students of folk music at Sibelius Academy, Helsinki. The duo proudly represent a traditional yet seldom heard combination of kannel and fiddle.
