Tannara produce contemporary Scottish folk music: considered, complex arrangements that surround original tunes, modern tunes and traditional ballads.
Converging from across the country, four top musicians entangled within Scotland’s rich web of traditions:
Owen Sinclair (Acoustic Guitar/Electric Guitar/Vocals)
Becca Skeoch (Harp)
Joseph Peach (Accordion)
Robbie Greig (Fiddle)
Collective experience gives their musical approach a unique flavour. Despite the material’s modernity, it’s hardwired in spirit to the tradition.
At no point is the music pretty and delicate. There’s 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 resulting, electrifying live act saw Tannara nominated for the ‘Up and Coming Artist of the Year’ award at the 2016 Scots Trad Music Awards.
Debut album, Trig, was produced by Rachel Newton, and launched in the summer of 2016.
“One of Scotland’s brightest new up and coming bands”.
