Finalists in the BBC Radio 2 Folk awards 2017 as best newcomers, FARA brings together four emerging musicians at the forefront of today’s young 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. Releasing their debut album ‘Cross the Line’ in September of 2016, the band have gone on to appear on some of the great stages of the world including the Royal Albert Hall in London (BBC Radio 2 Folk awards 2017) and Glasgow Royal Concert Hall where they appeared with Cherish the Ladies at Celtic Connections 2017.
“Fara are certainly a quartet to watch. Cross The Line is an ambitious, accomplished and beautiful debut that showcases four musicians’ superb and sensitive musicianship and charming vocal harmonies. A delight.” – **** Songlines Magazine
