Rant are now firmly established as a vibrant sound on the British folk scene. Nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2014, the band is the meeting of four of Scotland's finest fiddle players, two from the Shetlands and two from the Highlands. Using just their fiddles, Bethany Reid, Jenna Reid, Sarah-Jane Summers and Lauren MacColl weave a gorgeous tapestry of melodies and textures. Acclaim for Rant arrived in the form of a Herald Angel Award for outstanding performance across all the Edinburgh Festivals. In addition 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. 2016 sees the release of their second album Reverie which sees them continue with this song strand, collaborating both with Fowlis and Scots singer Ewan McLennan.
