Scotland’s fresh-faced folk-rock phenomenon Mànran play Shoreham’s Ropetackle on Thursday, June 4 at 8pm – a band described as ‘absolutely epic’ by former Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond.
Ropetackle spokesman Mark Phillips said: “Scotland’s finest contemporary folk rock band Mànran have amassed an impressive following over just five years together. With their meteoric rise has come appearances at some of the most prestigious folk festivals around the world, so their appearance here at Ropetackle will be something very special indeed. Combining traditional Celtic roots with fiery fiddle, accordion, flute, and bagpipes, Mànran fuse in elements of funk, jazz and rock to create some of the most innovative and uplifting instrumental music around. They are an unmissable act at the top of their game, and their show at Ropetackle will be a particular treat for fans of folk, rock and Celtic music.
“Mànran have quite literally rocketed to the top of the Scottish music scene with their powerful combination of Gaelic/English songs underpinned by driving accordion, fiddle, flute, and a backline of drum and bass to make any mouth water. Mànran are also the only band to host Highland and Uilleann pipes together in one line-up, creating a sound like no other.
“Since 2010 Mànran have performed at festivals in Europe and Scotland; highlights being Celtica, Italy, and the Hebridean Celtic Festival, Lewis. Don’t miss them as they take to the Ropetackle stage.”
