Merlyn Driver is a musician and songwriter from Orkney - a small group of islands in the north of Scotland. Trained in ethnomusicology, Merlyn makes music that reflects his exposure to Celtic folk as well as his passion for nature and different musical traditions from around the world.

Merlyn Driver’s recently released debut EP was produced by BBC Folk Awards winner Ben Walker (Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker, Oh Sister, Jinnwoo) and Colin Bass (9Bach, Etran Finatawa, Krar Collective) and features guest appearances by the Sámi joiker Marja Mortensson, Michael Wilbur from the Brooklyn-based band Moon Hooch, and several other collaborators from the UK and further afield.

Main support on the night will come from the core trio of the great Nepali band, NAMLO.
