Niteworks are Innes Strachan (Synth/Keys), Allan MacDonald (Pipes),Christopher Nicolson (Bass)and Ruairidh Graham (Drums). Childhood friends and long-term fellow musicians from the Isle of Skye, Niteworks blur the lines between Scottish traditional, folk and Gaelic music with contemporary electronica, creating a unique and exhilarating sound.

In August 2018, the band released their greatly anticipated second album Air Fàir an Là.

The album, which contains contributions from high profile artists such as Julie Fowlis, Iain Morrison and Ellen MacDonald, is further textured with the strings of Glasgow’s own Kinnaris Quintet, and vocals of Gaelic song trio SIAN. To oversee production, the band enlisted the help of Scottish DJ legend and electronic producer Alex Menzies (Alex Smoke) to create an album with an entirely original sound, described in The National as “redefining trad music”.
