A decade on from their first performance – and with 3 acclaimed albums under their belt – RANT remain at the forefront of the Scottish fiddle scene. The meeting of four of the country’s finest players, the quartet use just their fiddles to weave a tapestry of melodies, textures, layers and sounds.

Bethany Reid from Shetland, Anna Massie from the Highland peninsula of the Black Isle, latest member Gillian Frame from Arran and Sally Simpson from Edinburgh (standing in for original member Lauren MacColl, who is on maternity leave) join forces to showcase the combined resonance of their instruments with repertoire unearthed from both old collections and their own contemporary writing. RANT create a sound which is both spacious and lush, yet retaining all the earthy bite and spark synonymous with a Scottish fiddle player.
