RANT is the meeting of 4 of Scotland's finest fiddle players, two from the Shetland Islands and two from the Highlands. Bethany Reid, Jenna Reid, Sarah-Jane Summers and Lauren MacColl join forces to create a rich and vibrant sound, evocative of the exciting scene they create music in. They made their debut performance in July 2012, storming onto the scene and immediately earning high praise. Using just their fiddles, they weave a tapestry of melodies, textures, layers and sounds.
Since the release of their debut album RANT in 2013 which earned them a Herald Angel Award, the band have made major festival and concert appearances across the UK, Ireland and Scandinavia, and recorded strings for Julie Fowlis on her latest album Gach Sgeul. They also received a nomination for Best Traditional Track at the 2014 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
