Fara brings together four leading musicians at the forefront of today's Scottish folk scene Jennifer Austin, Kristan Harvey, Jeana Leslie and Catriona Price's three fiddles and a piano to produce a fiery sound rooted strongly in their upbringing among the music of Orkney.
Following a nomination for Up And Coming Act of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards in 2015, the success of their debut album Cross The Line in 2016, lead to a nomination for the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards' Horizon Award. Fara also performed at 2017's prestigious event in the Royal Albert Hall, to a rapturous response. (Click here to watch their performance.) Also in 2017, Fara won the Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik (German Critics Choice Award) and were nominated for Folk Band of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards.
The four contrasting personalities and individual musical voices in Fara, make for a colourful melting pot each member brings a different musical pallet to the table. But the strong Orkney fiddle tradition that the four women grew up on together, is the glue that binds them, and is at the heart of each of their musical characters.
