The Spott Session - Tannara
Bold, creative, and original; Tannara have established themselves as one of the UK's most interesting and unique contemporary folk groups.
Since the band's formation in 2014 they've covered considerable musical ground. With a background in Scotland's native traditions, their ceaseless musical development is a melting pot of ideas, genres and sounds: From indie rock to electronica, as well as Scotland's vibrant and diverse folk scene.
Unafraid to experiment, their music is an electrifying meeting place for a world of sounds: Punchy and clean, riotous and gritty, tender and honest. On fiddle, harp, guitar, accordion and vocals, Tannara make an intensely considered musical world which is uniquely theirs.
Their approach has seen them to many successes: From the 2016 release of their debut album "Trig" (produced by Rachel Newton) to great critical acclaim, to an enthusiastic reception from audiences at venues and festivals across the world, with highlights including Cambridge Folk Festival, La Festival Interceltique de Lorient, as well as a host of others.
Their successes look set to continue in to 2019, with the release of their second album "Strands" at Celtic Connections festival, followed by an extensive touring schedule both in the UK and abroad.
The Herald: "Fiery and Graceful".
The Times: "Tannara blend fiddle, guitar, harp and accordion with sensitivity, dynamic variation and tonal awareness".
