Mànran in Galashiels!

Our spring programme of exciting music events is well on the way, so read on below to find out about one of Scotland’s best-loved folk-rock bands, Mànran, who are playing at Volunteer Hall, Galashiels on 31 May!

With a central ethos built around the band’s traditional Celtic roots, fiery tunes from fiddle, accordion, flute, uillean and Highland bagpipes bind powerfully to a rhythm section awash with elements of funk, jazz and rock to create some of the most innovative and uplifting instrumental music around. Coupled with songs in both Gaelic and English that undergo the same musical mixology, it’s easy to understand why Mànran are in such high demand as a live act.

With three highly-regarded studio albums under their belt, and eight triumphant years of blowing audiences away with healthy amounts of passion, poise, virtuosity and vigour, Mànran are continuing to explore new musical and geographical territory. Mànran thrive on live performances and spend most of the year touring, and in between UK gigs, the band will be hitting the studio to record a fourth studio album, which is set to be released this summer.

“At Live Borders, one of our charity’s aims is to make lives happier, which coming to see Mànran will definitely do! We can’t wait to see this incredible band play in Volunteer Hall as part of our live events programme, which we hope will breathe new life into these important town halls,” said Olly Robertson one of our Area Managers at Live Borders.

Doors open at 19:00 on 31 May at Volunteer Hall, Galashiels. Tickets are £20 and available from Eventbrite or by calling Border Events on 01750 725480.
