News from RANT… as they say a very fond farewell to their bandmate Jenna Reid, departing the band after 10 years, and a huge welcome to wonderful musician Gillian Frame. A familiar name to any folk fan, Gillian has been a friend of the band for years who are over the moon to have her and her fantastic playing on board.
Bethany Reid from Shetland, Anna Massie and Lauren MacColl from the Highland peninsula of the Black Isle, and Gillian Frame from Arran join forces to showcase the combined resonance of their instruments with repertoire unearthed from both old collections and their own contemporary writing. RANT create a sound which is both spacious and lush yet retaining all the earthy bite and spark synonymous with a Scottish fiddle player.
The quartet been working away over the last couple of months on new material and old RANT favourites and looking forward to releasing new music with Gillian this winter with live dates available in 2022.
