‘Staran' are a new collective featuring Kim Carnie, John Lowrie, Jack Smedley, Innes White and James Lindsay.

Their debut, self-titled release is the first collaboration from this exciting combination of musicians and sees them combine traditional tunes with original compositions and Gaelic song.

“They have produced a lush, multi-layered sound that is woven together as if a conversation, where each element is given space to be expressive, then time to breathe. Music that is very much alive and speaks to optimism for the future.” Mike Vass
