RURA are a multi award-winning act and one of Scotland’s most sought-after folk bands. With three heralded albums, RURA affirm their position as one of Scotland’s leading instrumental groups.
Their exquisitely rugged yet refined blend of fiddle, Highland pipes, flute, bodhrn and guitar has won a devoted following in many corners of the globe, amongst audiences and critics alike.
FIDDLE – Jack Smedley
PIPES/WHISTLES/PIANO – Steven Blake
GUITAR – Adam Brown
BODHRÁN/FLUTE – David Foley
Ross Couper & Tom Oakes
Fiddle meets guitar. Foot-tappingly banging. Ear-pleasingly melodic. A beautifully rich combination of string on string that oozes with charisma. Ross and Tom keep their music simple – spine-tingling tunes with a sprinkle of banter.
The duo come with some heavyweight credentials, on top of being shortlisted for Album of the Year in the 2017 Scots Trad Awards. Ross was nominated for Instrumentalist of the Year in the 2015 Scots Trad Awards and his explosive fiddle playing lies at the heart of the mighty Peatbog Faeries, whilst Tom is a multi-award-winning guitarist, flautist and composer.
Without doubt – Couper and Oakes are a full throttle force to be reckoned with.
A really special trio made up from members of Madderam and former members of the Feis Fhiort. The trio will play a mix of flute, vocals, fiddle and guitar.
Eilidh MacIntyre, Ellie McLaren and Johanna Kirkpatrick
