Grit is the last studio album by the Scottish Celtic fusion artist Martyn Bennett. It was released on 13 October 2003 on the Real World label. The album had been recorded while he was ill, and he was unable to play his instruments. Bennett brought together samples of unaccompanied traditional Scottish folk singers, his own bagpipe and fiddle playing, with and electronic drum beats.

Martyn Bennett (17 February 1971 – 30 January 2005) was a Canadian-Scottish musician who was influential in the evolution of modern Celtic fusion, a blending of traditional Celtic and modern music. He was a piper, violinist, composer and producer. He was an innovator and his compositions crossed musical and cultural divides. Sporting dreadlocks at the height of his performing career, his energetic displays led to descriptions such as "the techno piper"

Martyn Bennett had actually been working that territory since his eponymous debut in 1995 but really came into his own in the years since; Grit is a tour de force of avant-folk fusion music on which he manages to craft irresistibly hip-shaking beats and bring them to bear on traditional material without sacrificing any of the stark beauty of his source.

It's 20 years since Martyn Bennett composed his orchestral piece 'MacKay's Memoirs' rtyn's piping, and is built on the ground and first two variations of Lament for Mary MacLeod. It was commissioned by the City of Edinburgh Music School (based at Broughton High School), and was designed to suit Secondary-age pupils.

Remembering Martyn Bennett: The rebirth of Grit. The opening night of this year’s Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow featured a full orchestration of Martyn Bennett's last album, Grit, by cross-genre classical violinist Greg Lawson.
