Folkworks: RANT

RANT-Copright-Sean-Purser

THIS EVENT HAS PASSED

RANT is the meeting of 4 of Scotland’ s finest fiddle players, two from the Shetland Islands and two from the Highlands.  Their 3rd album – ‘The Portage’ – was recorded over 4 days in the renowned Mackintosh Queen’s Cross, the only church in the world to be designed by architect, artist and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh. This space was the ideal setting to capture what RANT do best – showcasing the rich resonance of their 4 fiddles in various tunings, textures and layers in a stark, honest recording.

This is dignified, deep and profound music.fRoots

​Bethany Reid, Jenna Reid, Lauren MacColl and Anna Massie join forces to create a sound which is both rich and lush, yet retaining all the bite and spark synonymous with a Scottish fiddle player. Using just their fiddles, they weave a tapestry of melodies, textures, layers and sounds. Known for their work as soloists and with various bands, this is a celebration of the instrument they all have a passion for.

Sheer class” ***** The Herald, Celtic Connections 2016 Review

Since the release of their debut album ‘RANT’ in 2013 which won them critical acclaim in the form of a Herald Angel Award for outstanding performance across all the Edinburgh Festivals , the band have made major festival and concert appearances across the UK, Ireland and Scandinavia. They provided strings for Julie Fowlis’ Gach Sguel album, and their music has been used for both BBC and ITV national television programmes.

“An irresistible journey through reels, strathspeys and jigs Songlines 

Their live set reflects their years of honing their sound together and their love for their home areas of Shetland and the Highlands through the writing, repertoire and stories.

Nominated ‘Folk Band of the Year’ – Scots Trad Awards 2016 | Nominated ‘Best Traditional Track’ – BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2014
