The Mareel Music Makers group (MMM) brings together six creative young adults from different places in Shetland. Matthew Adam - Cunningsburgh, Alana Groat - Bressay, Mari Johnson - Muckle Roe, Peter Keay - Sandwick, Amanda Shearer - Sandwick, Calum Risk – Lerwick.

The aim of the group is to make music together in a supportive atmosphere with emphasis on listening, communicating and self-expression. MMM improvise and experiment with a range of instrumental combinations which include electric guitar, log drum, ukulele, cymbal, melodica, bass guitar, mouth organ and tubular chimes. They have also incorporated recorded sounds from out on location to create their own unique and eclectic sound world.
