ABOUT LENA

When her husband Steve Dewar brought a fiddle home, in 2012, Dutch Lena picked it up and started playing. Since she played Celtic tunes and classical music in music groups.  After a view years Lena accompanied Scottish and Irish songs with her self made lines. Working together with her husband Lena started singing second voices, Gaelic songs and Puirt à beul.

Puirt à beul, "tunes from a mouth", is a traditional form of song native to Scotland that sets Gaelic lyrics to instrumental tune melodies. Historically, they were used to accompany dancing in the absence of instruments and to transmit instrumental tunes orally.

Nowadays Lena and her husband are forming together the base of the band Dewar. They perform in different formats (from duo to quartet, with guest musicians to). For more information you can visit the Dewar website page.
