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, emotional and stirring.

They bring a string quartet’s thinking to their fiddles, weaving a tapestry of quite stunning 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 contributing to one beautiful sound!

Since the release of their debut album ‘RANT’ in 2013, for which they won 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’. In 2014 they were nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

“By turns atmospheric, soulful and joyous, this is music that never overplays its hand but revels in the richness of its creators’ imaginations and talents.”
