‘One of the most exciting bands on the Scottish folk scene’ ~ Songlines

RURA are a multi award-winning act, and one of Scotland’s most sought-after folk-based bands.
With two heralded albums, a third due for release in June 2018, and extensive international touring, RURA continually affirm their position as one of Scotland’s most powerful groups. Their exquisitely rugged yet refined blend of fiddle, Highland pipes, flute, bodhran, guitar and voice has won a devoted following in many corners of the globe, amongst audiences and critics alike.
The group’s fire first ignited in 2010, as award-winners at Glasgow’s world-renowned Celtic Connections festival, where they have now appeared on a remarkable seven occasions – taking just one year off from their formative award win. Since then, Jack Smedley, Steven Blake, David Foley and Adam Brown’s powerful, entrancing instrumentals have been a main stage highlight of many of the world’s leading folk festivals – including Cambridge, Tønder, Winnipeg, Vancouver and HebCelt, amongst countless others across more than 20 countries. The band has numerous national radio and television appearances, including BBC1’s Hogmanay Live.
