NOMINATED FOR A BBC RADIO 2 FOLK AWARD 2014
RANT is the meeting of 4 of Scotland’s finest fiddle players, two from the Shetland Islands and two from the Highlands. Bethany Reid, Jenna Reid, Sarah-Jane Summers and Lauren MacColl join forces to create a sound rich and vibrant, evocative of the exciting scene they create music in. They made their debut performance in July 2012, storming onto the scene and immediately earning high praise, “delightful … a quartet which should enrich both the traditional and classical music scenes in future” (Northings.com, live review). 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. 4 fiddles: one beautiful sound! Since the release of their debut album ‘RANT’ in 2013 which earned them a Herald Angel Award, the band have made major festival and concert appearances across the UK, Ireland and Scandinavia, and recorded strings for Julie Fowlis on her latest album ‘Gach Sgeul’.
