Instrumentalist of the Year in the Scots Trad Music Awards 2016 and Musician of the Year in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017

Her album Here's My Heart Come Take It was shortlisted for a Scottish Album of the Year (SAY) Award 2017.
The Observer described the album as 'a beauty' and the Herald described Rachel as 'the sound of modern Scotland'.

Nikolaz Cadoret: Nikolaz draws on deep Celtic roots and has also been inspired by classical music and improvisation. In an intimate and virtuoso dialogue with his harps, whether acoustic or electric, sweet or explosive, he builds surprising bridges between those genres displaying complete freedom in his interpretation.

‘En déclenchant une alerte sismique sonore, Nikolaz Cadoret porte son instrument hors des sentiers battus’ - La Marseillaise. (Triggering a seismic event, Nikolaz Cadoret takes his instrument into unchartered territory)
