|Saturday 20th October 2018 7:30pm||Finalists in the BBC Radio 2 Folk awards 2017 as best newcomers, FARA brings together four emerging musicians at the forefront of today's young Scottish folk scene. The three fiddlers and a pianist - Jennifer Austin, Kristan Harvey, Jeana Leslie and Catriona Price - produce a fiery sound rooted strongly in their upbringing among the scenery, history and music of Orkney.Having been friends since early childhood, the young women grew up under the musical guidance of Douglas Montgomery (The Chair, Saltfishforty). They have since established themselves in the Scottish music scene winning prizes along the way including the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award, BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year and Deutsche Bank Award in Performance and Composition.Fara are certainly a quartet to watch ... superb and sensitive musicianship and charming vocal harmonies. A delight. - Songlines magazineWatch Fara's mesmerising BBC Folk Awards performance at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04z5fmj.|
