RURA with support from Fred Morrison

RURA are a multi award-winning act, and one of Scotland’s most popular folk-based bands. The quartet’s compellingly fiery, rugged yet refined and progressive instrumentals on fiddle, Highland pipes, flute, guitar, keyboards and bodhran has placed them firmly at the forefront of 21st century Scottish folk. In their decade together, their entrancing, euphoric live shows have been a main stage highlight of many of the world’s leading folk festivals.

The origins of Fred Morrison’s music are securely rooted in the exacting piping tradition of South Uist in the Outer Hebrides. Having won many of the major awards both in Scotland and abroad he went on to pursue a highly successful performing career. Although his first-love instrument remains the great Highland bagpipes, over the years his mastery has expanded to encompass Scottish smallpipes, Reelpipes, uilleann pipes and the low whistle. Voted ‘Best Instrumentalist’ in 2004, Fred also played with supergroups Clan Alba and Capercaillie and appeared in and arranged music for Hollywood film Rob Roy.

This concert is part of the Tarland Food and Music Festival.
