Rura are one of the most sought-after bands of their generation. A hit at festivals throughout Europe, renowned for their rugged and energetic arrangements, the bands powerful sound " rooted in tradition, yet refreshingly contemporary " comes from a punch-packing mix of highland pipes, whistle, flute, fiddle, bodhran and guitar. Steven Blake, Jack Smedley, David Foley and Adam Brown create strong and dynamic, yet lyrical, instrumentals to match singer/songwriter Adam Holmes haunting songcraft. With headline festival appearances to match their high praise and many award credits, Rura are firmly placed at the forefront of contemporary folk.
