live reviews: Shona Mooney, The Village, Edinburgh, Jan 9 ****; video and dvd reviews.

Byline: BARRY GORDON

MOVE over, Vanessa Mae.

There's a new violinist in town . . . Shona Mooney.

Barely 22, the Borders fiddler is even better looking than her contemporary Nicola Benedetti, and she doesn't play stuffy classical pieces written by boring dead people.

Instead she writes her own upbeat folk tunes - songs that would certainly entertain people her own age should they be adventurous enough to listen.

Playing mostly from her debut album, Heartsease, Mooney has confidence and technical ability.

Check her out before she gets famous. It's going to happen.
