RANT is the meeting of 4 of Scotland’ s finest fiddle players, two from the Shetland Islands and two from the Highlands.
Bethany Reid, Lauren MacColl, Anna Massie and Gillian Frame 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.
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.
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, and recorded strings for Julie Fowlis on her album ‘Gach Sgeul’.
