At no point is the music pretty and delicate. When we play, there’s a raw energy that brings booming sets of tunes and songs together with moments of knot-in-stomach beauty. It’s four big personalities bouncing off each other to create big sounds.
The resulting, electrifying live act saw Tannara nominated for the “Up and Coming Artist of the Year” award at the 2016 Scots Trad Music Awards.
