Jenna is a fiddler who was born and bred in Quarff, Shetland.
Her fiddling began at a young age alongside her sister & brother, under the watchful eye of the late Willie Hunter.
Jenna’s recently released 5th solo album ‘Working Hands’ is a stunning collection of her compositions.
Working Hands is Jenna's most accomplished album to date.
Working Hands presents Jenna Reid’s most mature and accomplished music to date. Featuring the ultra-classy McFall’s Chamber, it brings together the poised expression of her playing with fiddle quartet Rant and the touch, tone, gorgeous blue notes, conspiratorial feints and sheer exuberance that have long been the hallmark of Jenna’s truly inspired partnership with pianist Harris Playfair.
Featuring predominantly original compositions, the album grew out of lessons Jenna took with Robert McFall. Already extremely proficient and expressive, Reid wanted to work on her technique and hone her sound and delivery, and from working on these finer points with McFall she decided to make a recording that was different to her previous albums such as With Silver and All and Morning Moon.
Jenna has been performing, composing and teaching for years.
Stay up to date with where Jenna’s performing and how you can learn the fiddle from her.
