Mànran are one of the best-known and best-loved Scottish bands on the scene today. The 2011 launch of their debut single, “Latha Math” heralded a meteoric rise to the top of the Scottish music world that quickly saw them playing many of the most prestigious festivals in Europe despite having only been in existence a few short months. From then, a multi-award-winning debut album followed as the band set about living up to the hype surrounding their early release while establishing their characteristic sound and distinctive approach to musical arrangement.

‘Mànran are an exceptionally talented bunch of young guys that are taking the music world by storm with their high energy, stomping tunes and phenomenal gaelic and english songs’ Donald Shaw, Celtic Connections

Sinderins A famous Dundee landmark has been immortalised in musical circles after a prominent Dundee city band decided to rename themselves after it. Sinderins is now the new name for Anderson, McGinty, Webster, Fisher (and Barbour), a mouthful that has long been a bone of contention for fans, radio and TV presenters and journalists. The Sinderins is the five-way junction in the West End at the point where Perth Road meets Hawkhill, Blackness Avenue and Shepherd’s Loan, which handily reflects the make-up of the five-piece outfit. Their debut album, full of surreal folk mixed with carefully crafted pop, was produced by Grammy winner Matt Lawrence and is setting tongues wagging at a glimpse.

Claire Hastings is a folksinger/songwriter originally from Dumfries. This year, Claire was announced as the winner of BBC Radio Scotland’s Young Traditional Musician of the Year award. Since winning the title, Claire has had the opportunity to perform at many high-profile events including the prestigious BBC Proms in the Park and BBC Music Day, at which she sang alongside Lulu, Jamie Cullum and Deacon Blue. She also performed with the Scottish Symphony Orchestra at both events. Other recent performances include Orkney Folk Festival supporting Seth Lakeman and at the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh.
