Tattie Jam play (mainly Scots) traditional and folk music, with a twist. Seylan Baxter sings and plays the lead on a 5-string electric cello, and Ruaridh Pringle sings and plays dynamic accompaniment on guitar - and sometimes didgeridoo and octave mandolin; sometimes also taking the lead on mandolin. While playing and singing everything from keening slow airs and a capella dark ballads to kinetic reels and gentle or high-octane original songs (many of their songs and tunes are written by Ruaridh Pringle), their style is highly energetic, with both melodies and a strong rhythmic underpinning being bounced around between both musicians. Rich, sometimes unexpected harmonies predominate in their singing, with both singers alternating the lead.
