Fara bring together four young musicians from today’s young Scottish folk scene - Jennifer Austin, Kristan Harvey, Jeana Leslie and Catriona Price - with three fiddles and a piano to produce a fiery sound rooted strongly in their upbringing among the music of Orkney.

They have all since established themselves in the Scottish music scene winning prizes along the way which include the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award, The BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year, The Deutsche Bank Award in Performance and Composition, and the Danny Kyle Award.

With vibrant arrangements full of rich harmonies, energetic fiddle playing and driving piano, Fara’s show is sure to be an exciting one. With a mixture of self-penned and traditional Orkney tunes as well as stunning vocals, the girls’ combined musical experiences and friendships produce an exciting and individual sound.
