Home   /   Artists   /   Teevliks


Teevliks formed in 2013 whilst students on the HNC Music Course at Mareel and made their debut appearance at the Shetland Folk Festival. The group brings together five notable young musicians at the cutting edge of the Shetland music scene, some of whom are now studying and playing elsewhere in the UK and Europe.

As Teevliks, they fuse folk and funk, taking original Shetland, Irish and Scandinavian tunes and incorporating them into jazz-funk workouts and improvisations. Featuring Martha Thomson (fiddle), Max Tyler (piano), Patrick Mainland (guitar), Hayden Hook (bass) and Norman Wilmore (drums).
