About Soundhouse: RANT

Soundhouse Organisation

RANT is the meeting of four 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 release Reverie saw them continue this song strand, collaborating with Fowlis once more, and for the first time, Scots singer Ewan McLennan. They have recently launched a major youth project ‘RANT 4/4 - A Project for Projection’ and will release a third album in 2019.

Venue: Traverse Bar Café

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Soundhouse: RANT are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
