Fara are four exceptionally talented young musicians who grew up together on Orkney. The reaction when they got together for the Orkney Folk Festival encouraged them to become a full time band. They have just released their debut album and have already performed at many festivals including Celtic Connections and the Cambridge Folk Festival.
The girls individually play with artists such as Blazin Fiddles, Cara, Rachel Sermanni and Twelfth Day.
With music firmly rooted in the traditions of Orkney, Kristan Harvey, Jeana Leslie and Catriona Price’s dynamic fiddles combine with Jennifer Austin’s driving piano to produce a fiery sound rooted strongly in their upbringing.
Add in Jeana’s vocals and harmonies from the band and the combination is a vocal and instrumental delight!
‘fantastic playing, clearly loving what they are doing, with rapturous audience rapport, what more could you want in a show?’ Anna Massie, BBC Radio Scotland
