Fara - Berkhamsted Campaign for Real Music
YES! We are delighted to welcome back Fara who gave us such an incredible opening night in February 2018
Fara brings together four leading musicians at the forefront of today's Scottish folk scene - Jennifer Austin, Kristan Harvey, Jeana Leslie and Catriona Price's three fiddles and a piano - to produce a fiery sound rooted strongly in their upbringing among the music of Orkney.
The four contrasting personalities and individual musical voices in Fara, make for a colourful melting pot - each member brings a different musical pallet to the table. But the strong Orkney fiddle tradition that the four women grew up on together is the glue that binds them and is at the heart of each of their musical characters.
They hold degrees from The Royal Academy of Music, The Royal Northern College of Music, The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and Strathclyde University. Their diverse other projects include Blazin' Fiddles, and Jeana Leslie & Siobhan Millerand accolades include BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award and BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year.
