Laura stands out because she’s found her musical voice – one of the hardest things to do as an instrumentalist. She’s got there through open ears and pure dedication; also by having a deeply rooted but keenly explorative way of engaging with her tradition. This is the warmest and most effortlessly lyrical fiddle playing I’ve heard in a long time

“Laura Wilkie is one of Scotland’s finest musicians and teachers. She is a wonderful fiddler who can perform many styles solo and in band settings. As teacher she inspires all who work with her”
Simon Thoumire, Hands Up for Trad


“We were honoured to have Laura Wilkie playing fiddle our recent album Written In Water. The band were all blown away by her musicianship, inventiveness, her love and respect for traditional music and her versatility. She was a breath of fresh air and taught these old hands new tricks. We think she is one of the most outstanding musicians/composers in Scotland today”
– Jane-Ann Purdy, Shooglenifty

“Laura’s fiddle playing is full of soul, with a rich tone, impressive technique, a wide harmonic knowledge, and a large helping of musical mischief to back it up”
– Ian Carr, Ian Carr and the Various Artists
