Nominated ‘Folk Band of the Year’ – Scots Trad Awards 2016

RANT is the meeting of 4 of Scotland’s finest fiddle players, two from the Shetland Islands and two from the Highlands. Nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2014 for Best Traditional track, they tour their unique brand of ‘chamber-folk’ far and wide.

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.

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’.

Their latest album, recorded live over 4 days in early January, captures the sound of Glasgow’s iconic ‘Macintosh Church’ – the only church in the world to be designed by Scottish Architect Charles Rennie Macintosh. In this, their first recording with Anna Massie, the band indulge in the bright resonance of the space with their trademark stark airs, and richly textured arrangements of old and contemporary traditional music.
