FOLLOWING their debut release Cross the Line in 2016, Orcadian folk Quartet FARA are touring Australia for the first time with material from their second album, Times from Times Fall.
Fara brings together four leading musicians at the forefront of today's young Scottish folk scene.
Kristan Harvey, Jeana Leslie and Catriona Price's three fiddles combine with Rory Matheson's piano to produce a fiery sound rooted strongly in their upbringing among the music of Orkney.
With a mixture of self-penned and traditional Orkney tunes as well as stunning vocals, Fara's musical experiences and friendships produce an exciting and individual sound.
They are excited to tour Australia for the first time in 2020 and, with such vibrant arrangements full of rich harmonies, energetic fiddle playing and driving piano, audiences are sure to be thrilled too.
Wednesday, March 4th at The Rex Cafe Bar, 131 Barkly Street, Ararat. $20 - Tickets.
