Dig out your dancing shoes, because top traditional group Manran are playing Strathpeffer Pavilion tomorrow night and that means it will be almost impossible to sit still.
The exceptionally talented bunch of young musicians are taking the music world by storm with their high-energy, stomping tunes and phenomenal Gaelic and English songs.
Since they formed four years ago, they have skyrocketed to the top of the Scottish music scene, performing sellout shows at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections, a special concert at last year’s London Olympics and countless festival appearances, such as the Hebridean Celtic Festival, Shetland Folk Festival and the Tonder Folk Festival.
Described as a thrilling live act, the band comprises Norrie MacIver (vocals, guitar), Gary Innes (accordion, keyboards), Ewen Henderson (fiddle, pipes, whistles), Ryan Murphy (pipes, flute), Ross Saunders (bass guitar, vocals) and Scott Mackay (drums, percussion).
Gary Innes said: “This will be our first time back in the area since Runrig’s 40th-anniversary Party on the Moor. If we get half as good a reception as we got there, we will be in for one hell of a night.”
The show starts at 8pm tomorrow on Friday, May 30. Contact 01997 420124 or visit www.strathpefferpavilion.org
