Rura

Live Act of the Year at the 2015 Scots Trad Music Awards, Rura are “one of the most exciting bands on the Scottish folk scene” (Songlines).

With their second album, 2015’s Despite the Dark, accompanied by extensive UK and international touring, Rura have cemented their reputation as one of Scotland’s most powerful folk-based bands. Their exquisitely rugged, yet refined, blend of fiddle, Highland pipes, whistle, flute, bodhran, guitar and voice has proven a resounding hit across the board.

The five-piece’s fire first ignited in 2010, as award-winners at Glasgow’s world-renowned Celtic Connections festival, where they have since appeared on a remarkable seven consecutive occasions. Since then, Steven Blake, Adam Brown, David Foley, Adam Holmes and Jack Smedley’s powerful instrumentals and haunting songcraft has been a highlight of many of the world’s leading folk festivals – including Cambridge, Tønder, Winnipeg, HebCelt and Shetland, amongst countless others.
