RANT 

4th September 2016

Photograph of RANT 

RANT is the meeting of four of Scotland's finest fiddle players who have joined forces to create a rich sound that's both vibrant and evocative of Scotland's exciting new musical landscape which brings classical and traditional worlds together. Using just their fiddles and performing acoustically, they weave a tapestry of melodies, textures, layers and sounds. As one of the four fiddle players RANT welcomes Anna Massie, an incredibly talented and entertaining musician who returns for a second visit to Lyth this year.

"Delightful ... a quartet which should enrich both the traditional and classical music scenes in future" (Jennie Macfie, live review)
