Rura - Leith Folk Club

One of the finest Scottish acts to emerge in recent times, Rura, simply haven’t looked back since bursting on to the folk scene in 2010. Announced as winners of a prestigious Danny Kyle Award at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections festival 2011 and as ‘Up and Coming Artist of the Year’ at MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards, the powerhouse five-piece line-up of Rura has already performed across the UK, Europe and most recently in the U.S.A.

Combining highland pipes, whistles, flute, fiddle, bodhran, guitar and vocals, their powerful, energetic performances breathe new life into traditional music and showcase Scotland’s emerging talent in new contemporary folk songs and instrumentals.

Rura bookended the success of 2011 in December when, alongside producer Aidan O’Rourke (Lau/Kan) and recording engineer Ian Hutchison (Glo-worm Studios, Glasgow), the band recorded their debut album ‘Break it Up’. The album was released by Greentrax Records in March 2012 to great acclaim.

    Fantastic band. Fully deserve all the accolades they've been presented with giving us a great evening's entertainment. Thanks for organising Sandra - really glad I didn't miss it.

    Terrific, stirring music with bagpipes and tempo changes to keep you on your toes. Loved it.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
