Live Act of the Year at the 2015 Scots Trad Music Awards, Rura are one of the most exciting bands on the Scottish folk scene (Songlines). With their second album, 2015's Despite the Dark, Rura have reinforced their reputation as one of Scotland's most powerful folk-based bands. Their exquisitely rugged yet refined blend of fiddle, Highland pipes, whistle, flute, bodhran, guitar and voice has proven to be a resounding hit across the board. They are one of Scotland's most sought after acts. Catch them live and you will see why!
