Music Room


A rugged, yet refined, blending of fiddle, Highland pipes, whistle, flute, bodhran, guitar and voice from these award-winning Scots. '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).

The five-piece’s fire first ignited in 2010, as award-winners at Glasgow’s world-renowned Celtic Connections festival, where they have now appeared on a remarkable seven consecutive occasions. Since then, Steven Blake, Adam Brown, David Foley, Adam Holmes and Jack Smedley’s powerful instrumentals and haunting songcraft have been a highlight of many of the world’s leading folk festivals – including Cambridge, Tønder, Winnipeg, HebCelt and Shetland, amongst countless others.

Genuinely stirring stuff… there’s something very exciting about RURA
