Le Ailis Shutharlannach (pìob agus fìdeag), Ilona Cheanadach (fidheall) agus Kaitlin Ros (giotàr agus seinn), tha an dreach a chuireas Hecla air òrain is fuinn Ghàidhlig grinn, inntinneach is beothail. Tha iad air pàirt a ghabhail aig fèisean mar Celtic Connections, Piping Live agus Fèis Cheilteach Innse Gall, is tha iad air nochdadh air an stèisean rèidio, ‘Ceòl Ceilteach’. Tha ainm a’ chòmhlain a’ tighinn on chnoc àlainn, Hecla, ann an Uibhist a Deas, cnoc a chithear o Cholaiste Chaisteil Leòdhais, far a bheil an triùir nigheanan a’ cuir crìoch air cùrsa BA (Hons) ann an Eòlas-ciùil Gnìomhach aig Oilthigh na Gàidhealteachd agus nan Eilean.

HECLA is a traditional music trio based in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.
