Bethany Reid from Shetland, Anna Massie from the Highland peninsula of the Black Isle, Gillian Frame from Arran and Sally Simpson covering Lauren McColl's maternity leave, all join forces to showcase the combined resonance of their instruments with repertoire unearthed from both old collections and their own contemporary writing. RANT create a sound which is both spacious and lush, yet retaining all the earthy bite and spark synonymous with a Scottish fiddle player.
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.
Their live set reflects their years of honing their sound together and their love for the music of their respective home regions through their writing, repertoire and stories.
