Break It Up by Rura

This young Scottish band are creating a real buzz and it’s easy to see when they let it rip with their powerful blend of pipes, fiddle and two guitar rhythm section that is equal to classic bands like the Tannahill Weavers and Ossian.

The tunes are drawn from the Scottish and Irish tradition as well as some of the best contemporty composers. There are moments of quiet beauty too and some very interesting contemporary touches. Singer Adam Holmes contributes two really good original songs that really come alive with the full celtic treatment.

Paul Barr is from Readings Carlton.
