Fresh from their successful tour of America, Mànran will be returning to Lewis on the December 21st for two special festive shows which bring their unique blend of Gaelic and English, traditional and contemporary music for what’s sure to be incredible and memorable performances.
The band has taken the Scottish music scene by storm with an irresistible mix of Gaelic and English songs with accordion, fiddle and flute all backed by solid drums and bass.
Since the lads formed in 2010, Mànran has performed at festivals in Europe and Scotland - highlights being Celtica, Italy and, of course, the HebCelt.
In the last few months they crossed the pond on an American tour which took them to places like Arizona, Nevada and California, along the way playing the parts of sightseers taking in the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls and Las Vegas.
They are Carloway’s Norrie Maciver (vocals, guitar); Gary Innes (accordion, keyboards); Ewen Henderson (fiddle, highland pipes, whistle, vocals); Ryan Murphy (uilleann pipes, wooden flute); Ross Saunders (bass guitar, vocals), and Scott MacKay (drums, percussion).
This time Mànran are catering for everyone – and of whatever age – at the Barvas and Brue Community Centre in Barvas on Saturday, December 21st.
Their first show will be a family show, which is also open to under-18s, from 4pm. The second show will then kick off from 7.45pm to 11.30pm and is open to over-18s only.
