Converging from across the country, the members of the band are all entangled within Scotland’s rich web of traditions. They play contemporary Scottish folk music: Considered, complex, arrangements that surround original tunes, modern tunes and traditional ballads.
Despite the material’s modernity, it’s hardwired in spirit to the tradition. It has a raw energy that brings booming sets of tunes and songs together with moments of knot-in-stomach beauty, as played on the debut album Trig.
Tannara is Owen Sinclair (acoustic guitar/electric guitar/vocals), Becca Skeoch (harp), Joseph Peach (accordion) and Robbie Greig (fiddle).
