A superb second album from Manran, bringing their own unique blend of traditional Gaelic and English contemporary songs and tunes.

Manran formed in 2010 and since then have been growing in popularity.

2012 was another fantastic year for Manran. From the New Year house band on BBC ALBA Hogmanay 2012, to a sellout show at Celtic Connections topped by a special performance at the London Olympics.

The band have toured extensively during 2012 with appearances at many festivals including the Shetland Folk Festival, the Hebridean Celtic Festival, Lewis and internationally to Samso, Tonder Festival, Denmark, Tatihou, Lorient Interceltique Festival, France, Leon Spain and Schotts weekend, Belgium.

"One of the most exciting of the new crop of Scottish traditional bands, they've got it all, the songs and the tunes." Eddie Barcan, Cambridge Folk Festival.
