presented in support and cooperation with Young Tradition Vermont & part of Young Tradition Weekend
Fara is four young women (three fiddles and piano) from the Orkney Islands who have been friends and made music together since childhood. Their fiery sound is balanced by gorgeous harmonizing vocals, and their songs are a mix of traditional and trad-influenced original writing. All musicians with serious chops, they hold degrees from The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Strathclyde University, The Royal Northern College of Music, and The Royal Academy of Music. They have all since established themselves in the Scottish music scene winning prestigious prizes including the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award and BBC Radio Scotland’s Young Traditional Musicians of the Year. This is part of their first U.S. tour.
