Mànran – Saturday
“Mànran have found their voice” – Dàna Mag
Multi award-winning Scottish supergroup Mànran look ahead to celebrating 10 years at the heart of the Scottish traditional music scene. Internationally recognised as one of the most iconic and respected Scottish bands on the road today, the seven-piece show no signs of slowing down as they continue to push boundaries and explore new musical and geographical territory each year, bringing their uplifting and unique live performances to stages across the world.
With three hugely successful studio albums under their belt, Mànran are currently back in the studio working on their fourth that will be launched to mark the start of their decade celebratory year in 2020. Unique to this new piece of work will be the inimitable vocals of Gaelic songstress Kim Carnie who joined the ranks in 2019.
Having played in over 30 countries, including the USA, Asia and Australia (where they were awarded the accolade “International Artist of the Year” at the Australian Celtic Music Awards) the multifaceted musical powerhouse have amassed a loyal fanbase worldwide for their self-penned tunes performed on a mixture of traditional and modern instruments, alongside their outstanding songs in Gaelic and English.
