Bold, creative and original, Tannara (Owen Sinclair, Robbie Greig, Becca Skeoch and Joseph Peach) have established themselves as one of the UKs most interesting and unique contemporary folk groups.
Unafraid to experiment, their music is an electrifying meeting place for a world of sounds: punchy and clean, riotous and gritty, tender and honest. On fiddle, harp, guitar, accordion and vocals, Tannara make an intensely considered musical world which is uniquely theirs.
Their 2016 debut album Trig, produced by Rachel Newton, was received to great acclaim. Living Tradition Magazine rated it as simply outstanding, and t was longlisted for Album of the Year at the 2016 Scots Trad Music Awards, (when the band were also nominated for Up and Coming Artist of the Year).
Ever since they’ve enjoyed a busy schedule of performances and radio appearances across Europe, with highlights including Cambridge Folk Festival, and Festival Interceltique de Lorient, (which The Herald described as fiery and graceful).
Two years in the making, they released their second album, Strands, at Celtic Connections Festival 2019. Produced by Owen Sinclair and accordionist Joseph Peach, with input and guidance from Laus Martin Green the album marks a significant development for the band, and they are set for a busy 2019 with UK tours in March and September, a summer of festival appearances, and a mainland Europe tour in November.
