“Corran Raa play music that drinks deep from the well of tradition and sups from the bowl of invention. Music that’s equally ‘at home’ today as it was years ago. As you listen, there’s an edge cutting through that raises their own interpretations and compositions, sometimes fine and gentle at other times sharp and strong, but always finely placed.
Four musicians capable of crafting rich tunes and songs of incredible beauty, yet equally mercurial in their approach and poised to take you by surprise. Their tunes flourish and burst into life or slide through soft beginnings into subtle articulation, with a mix of melodies and rhythms. The fiddles of Jenny Smith and Janet Lees weave tapestries that entrance, while Kath Bruce on piano and vocals and Robbie Leask on guitar, provide the threads that hold the fabric together.” Tim Carroll (Folkwords)
