‘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.
“...a lush, richly textured delight, with mandolins and pianos creating a resonant world against which Gaelic singer Kim Carnie’s voice and Jack Smedley’s heartbreaking fiddle take flight” The Guardian
“...a stunning debut, a collage of creativity, a multi-textured triumph of technology and ingenuity” FATEA
“...an air of refinement and a genuine transcendent quality” At The Barrier
Staran: path, trail, stepping stones
