‘Mànran are an exceptionally talented bunch of young guys that are taking the music world by storm with their high energy, stomping tunes and phenomenal gaelic and english songs' - Donald Shaw, Celtic Connections

‘A thrilling live act, Mànran are one of Scotland’s best traditional outfits and their star is most definitely on the rise. Watch them go.’ - The Daily Record

Continuing their triumphant first year’s progress, having launched themselves at Celtic Connections in January, Highland outfit Mànran made their English debut with barnstorming sets on both main stages. Folk-rock has become a widely discredited sub-genre in an age of more exotic fusions, but Mànran – comprising six already established young instrumental and vocal luminaries – tackle this tricky territory boldly head-on, leavening their stomp-along power with top-drawer technical prowess and a wealth of distinctive flourishes, including English and Gaelic songs (both traditional and original), twinned Scottish and Irish bagpipes, a penchant for funk and reggae grooves and arrangements that match multi-layered richness with vivid definition.
