Bethany Reid, Anna Massie, Lauren McColl, Gillian Frame - Fiddles


'Chamber-folk of the highest order'



'Sheer class' *****

The Herald


A decade on from their first performance - and with 3 acclaimed albums under their belt - RANT remain at the forefront of the Scottish fiddle scene. These four fine players use just their fiddles to weave a tapestry of melodies, textures and sounds. 


Bethany Reid from Shetland, Anna Massie and Lauren MacColl from the Highland peninsula of the Black Isle and Gillian Frame from Arran join forces to showcase the combined resonance of their instruments with repertoire unearthed from old collections and their own contemporary writing. RANT create a sound which is spacious and lush whilst retaining all the earthy bite and spark synonymous with a Scottish fiddle player.


Their latest album - 'The Portage' - was recorded over 4 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 stark and honest reflection of their live sound - was awarded ‘Top of the World’ status from Songlines Magazine.






Covid-19 and concerts

In line with the most up-to-date guidance Public Health for Cambridgeshire & Peterborough, we:

  • clean all surfaces that people touch regularly and keep hand sanitizer around the site
  • ensure air flow remains good around the building (we have a highly efficient air extraction system in the concert hall)  
  • advise all ticket holders to take a lateral flow test before coming to an event at the Granary and insist that staff and visitors who are unwell do not attend the venue

Face coverings are currently not compulsory, but if the guidance changes we will communicate this to ticket holders
