Barry Nisbet is a composer and songwriting artist inspired by environment, nature and Shetland tradition. His music features strong melodies, often fiddle-led, with a voice that explores timeless or modern themes through Shetland dialect and Isles-accented English.

Open ocean, stories, and evocative moods are often features of his music; the power of nature weaves a common thread through shared human experiences, often separated by time or space, on albums such as ‘The Springbank Voyage’ (2022).

When not travelling the seas as founder of the ‘Sessions and Sail’ project, Nisbet records and produces in Cullivoe, Shetland.
