15.55-16.35, Club Tent • Friday

Converging from across the country, Tannara are entangled in Scotland’ s rich web of traditions.  They play contemporary Scottish folk music: Considered, complex, arrangements that surround original tunes, modern tunes and traditional ballads.  Collective experience makes their musical approach unique. Despite their material’ s modernity, it’s hardwired in spirit to the tradition of which their music is a continuation.

At no point is the music pretty and delicate. On fiddle, harp, guitar, accordion and vocals, Tannara play with a raw energy that brings booming sets of tunes and songs together with moments of knot-in-stomach beauty, it’s four big personalities bouncing off each other to create big sounds.  The result is an electrifying live act.
