With two highly regarded studio albums under their belt and four years of blowing audiences away with healthy amounts of passion, poise, virtuosity and vigour, Manran have positioned themselves as one of the most exciting live bands on the scene today.

With a central ethos built around the band’s traditional Celtic roots, fiery tunes from fiddle, accordion, flute, uillean and Highland bagpipes bind powerfully to a rhythm section awash with elements of funk, jazz and rock to create some of the most innovative and uplifting instrumental music around. Coupled with songs in both Gaelic and English that undergo the same musical mixology, it’s easy to understand why Manran are in such high demand.

‘Manran are an exceptionally talented bunch of young guys that are taking the music world by storm with their high energy, stomping tunes and phenomenal Gaelic and English songs’

Donald Shaw, Celtic Connections
