Making their debut appearance in Shetland are rising Orcadian stars, Haverin, with their indie folk music, a touch of country and a whole lot of harmonies.

The story of Haverin’s formation is an unexpected one. Initially coming together for a friend’s wedding, the six members of the band quickly discovered a musical chemistry that was too good to ignore. With a shared love for harmonies and a passion for creating music, Haverin decided to continue playing together, and the rest is history.

What sets Haverin apart from other up-and-coming bands is their commitment to writing and recording their own music. The band members are all multi-talented musicians who bring their unique skills to the table, resulting in a rich and dynamic sound. With the release of their debut single, Haverin is quickly gaining a dedicated fanbase, and they have exciting plans to release an EP in the near future.

The band are sibling vocalists Megan and Aileen Bain, Amy Berry on bass, Graeme Miller on guitar and vocals, Shetlander Jenny Keldie on vocals and fiddle and Andy Brown on keys.

Last year, they performed at the Orkney Folk Festival and also appeared at Westray Connections alongside Shetland band Laeverick.
