RANT is the meeting of four of Scotland’ s finest fiddle players – Bethany Reid, Jenna Reid, Lauren MacColl and Anna Massie who join forces to create a sound both rich and lush, yet retaining a savage bite and spark, weaving a tapestry of melodies, textures, layers and sounds.
Their third album – The Portage – was recorded over four days in the renowned Mackintosh Queen’s Cross Church – and is a stark, honest recording showcasing the rich resonance of their four fiddles in various tunings, textures and layers. RANT’S live set reflects years of honing their sound together, and their love for their home areas of Shetland and the Highlands.
