“Fiery and Graceful”- The Herald
Festivals, UK venue appearances, international touring, workshops
Bold, creative, and original; Tannara (Owen Sinclair, Robbie Greig, Becca Skeoch and Joseph Peach) have established themselves as one of the UK’s most interesting and unique contemporary folk groups.
Unafraid to experiment, their music is an electrifying meeting place for a world of sounds: Punchy and clean, riotous and gritty, tender and honest. On fiddle, harp, guitar, accordion and vocals, Tannara make an intensely considered musical world which is uniquely theirs.
From open air festivals, to intimate housconcerts, and everything in between, the band love playing live. A fact that’s reflected by their so far busy schedule of performances and radio appearances across Europe, with highlights including Cambridge Folk Festival, and Festival Interceltique de Lorient, a performance described as “Fiery and Graceful” by The Herald.
Tannara and its members are active workshop leaders and tutors. Collectively this has included: Trad workshops for Music for All’s Learn to Play Day at Glasgow Concert Hall, workshops at festivals across Europe, and regular teaching positions for various organisations.
2019 was the biggest year yet for Tannara, with the release of their second album “Strands” to a sold out Celtic Connections audience, and great critical acclaim. The album was produced by Tannara members Owen Sinclair and Joseph Peach, with input and guidance from Lau’s Martin Green. They’ve created a whole world around the band’s music; of found sounds and samples, synthesisers, and guest performances from Mattie Foulds on percussion and Josie Duncan on backing vocals.
Following the release, the band have kept a busy performance schedule, with touring encompassing the UK, Austria, Switzerland and Italy.
