Hailing from Shetland, sisters Jenna & Bethany Reid combine their fiddle playing skills and compositional talents to present a brand new suite of original music inspired by the extraordinary World War 2 escape missions that became known as the Shetland Bus. 'Escape' is the story of Norwegian Jan Baalsrud and the Shetland Bus. Jenna and Bethany Reid combine their talents to present a brand new suite of original music inspired by The Shetland Bus. One of World War 2's most compelling stories. The Shetland Bus was the name given to a secret operation between Shetland and German-occupied Norway from 1941-45. These missions did not go over land, but across the North Sea. With no lights and at constant risk of discovery by German aircraft and patrol boats, crossings were made during winter under the cover of darkness across the dangerous waters.
