Support Act: Fara
Fara are exceptionally talented young musicians who are at the forefront of new groups to have emerged from Scotland.
Hailing from the Isle of Orkney, where they have known each other since they were knee high, Kristan Harvey, Jeana Leslie and Catriona Price’s dynamic fiddles combine with Jennifer Austin’s driving piano to produce a fiery sound rooted strongly in their upbringing.
With stunning harmonies the band are a vocal and instrumental delight!
“fantastic playing, clearly loving what they are doing. with rapturous audience rapport, what more could you want in a show?”
