Rura

About Rura

With three heralded albums – most recently, 2018’s lauded In Praise of Home – and extensive international touring, RURA are one of Scotland’s most powerful groups. Their exquisitely rugged yet refined blend of fiddle, Highland pipes, flute, bodhran, guitar and voice has won a devoted following in many corners of the globe, amongst audiences and critics alike.

The group’s fire first ignited in 2010, as award-winners at Glasgow’s world-renowned Celtic Connections festival, where they have now appeared on a remarkable seven occasions – taking just one year off from their formative award win. Since then, Jack Smedley, Steven Blake, David Foley and Adam Brown’s powerful, entrancing instrumentals have been a main stage highlight of many of the world’s leading folk festivals – including Cambridge, Tønder, Winnipeg, Vancouver and HebCelt, amongst countless others across more than 20 countries. Their media profile is similarly huge, with numerous national radio and television appearances, including BBC1’s Hogmanay Live, broadcast live to the world over New Year 2016/2017 from Glasgow’s Old Fruitmarket.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Rura are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
