Fara brings together four leading musicians at the forefront of today’s young Scottish folk scene. Kristan Harvey, Jeana Leslie and Catriona Price’s three fiddles combine with Rory Matheson’s piano to produce a fiery sound rooted strongly in their upbringing among the music of Orkney.
With a mixture of self-penned and traditional Orkney tunes as well as stunning vocals, Fara’s musical experiences and friendships produce an exciting and individual sound. They were excited to tour Australia for the first time in 2020 and are looking forward to getting back out on the road in 2021. With vibrant arrangements full of rich harmonies, energetic fiddle playing and driving piano, audiences are sure to be thrilled too.
