After their sell out concert at the Granary in 2018 we welcome back the fiery sound of Fara. The new decade marks an exciting new chapter for Orkney's fiddle-led Fara, as founding Orkney frontwomen Jeana Leslie, Catriona Price and Kristan Harvey welcome young Highland pianist Rory Matheson to the line-up.


Shortlisted in the 2015 Scots Trad Music Awards, for Up & Coming Act of the Year, Fara followed their critically-acclaimed debut album, Cross the Line, with a triumphant set at the 2017 Radio 2 Folk Awards, as nominees for the Horizon prize. After winning a German Critics’ Choice Award that same year, Fara have continued to widen their reach, both artistically and geographically, drawing in strands of classical, Appalachian, jazz and indie-pop influence, while steadily multiplying the band’s fanbase across Europe and North America. All the while, nonetheless, the band’s deepest roots remain back home in Orkney.
