Converging from across the country, Tannara are entangled in Scotland’s rich web of traditions. They play contemporary Scottish folk music: Considered, complex, arrangements that surround original tunes, modern tunes tunes and traditional ballads. Collective experience makes their musical approach unique. Despite their material’s modernity, it’s hardwired in spirit to the tradition of which their music is a continuation.
Tannara play with a raw energy that brings booming sets of tunes and songs together with moments of knot-in-stomach beauty. It’s four big personalities bouncing off each other to create big sounds.
The album was supported by Creative Scotland Open Project Funding and the Generous Support of a number of Crowdfunding donors.
