RANT is the meeting of four of Scotland’ s finest fiddle players. Bethany Reid, Jenna Reid, Sarah-Jane Summers and Lauren MacColl create a rich and vibrant sound. Using just their fiddles, they weave a tapestry of melodies, textures and layers.
Since the release of their debut album ‘RANT’ which won great critical acclaim and a Herald Angel Award, the band have made major festival and concert appearances across the UK, Ireland and Scandinavia.
Their latest release Reverie sees them continue their song strand, collaborating with Julie Fowlis and Scots singer Ewan McLennan. RANT was nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2014 and for Folk Band of the Year in the Scots Trad Awards 2016.
