FARA brings together four leading musicians at the forefront of today’s Scottish folk scene. Kristan Harvey, Jeana Leslie and Catriona Price’s three fiddles combine with Rory Matheson’s piano to produce a fiery sound rooted strongly in their upbringing among the music of Orkney and Assynt. With self-penned tunes as well as stunning vocals; and vibrant arrangements full of rich harmonies, energetic fiddle playing and driving piano, FARA’s audiences are in for an exciting show.
Winners of the German Critics’ Choice Award 2017, nominees for a Radio 2 Horizon Folk Award and Scots Trad Music Award’s ‘Live Act of the Year’ amongst many other accolades; FARA is back on the road with new music, new stories and a brand new third studio album in 2022.
