RANT Reel into Peebles

A 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.

Together, Bethany Reid from Shetland, Anna Massie and Lauren MacColl from the Black Isle, and latest member Gillian Frame from Arran showcase the combined power of their instruments with a repertoire unearthed from both old collections and their own contemporary writing.

The band’s most recent album, The Portage, was recorded over four days in the renowned Mackintosh Queen’s Cross – the only church in the world to be designed by architect, artist and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The recording – a close reflection of their live sound – was awarded ‘Top of the World’ status from Songlines Magazine.

RANT play the Eastgate Theatre, 7.30pm, Fri 8 Oct. Tickets £17, £15, £8 under 16s, available from Box Office on 01721 725777, or online.
