Staran

A Julie Fowlis Curation

Voices Unwrapped

As part of her Artist-in-Focus curations for Voices Unwrapped, Julie Fowlis hand-picks Staran to present a specially curated programme of new and old Gaelic songs, featuring acclaimed vocalist Kim Carnie.


Some of the most sought-after artists on the Scottish folk scene have come together to create a formidable collective. Entitled Staran, the group released their eponymous debut album in May 2021. ‘Staran’, meaning path, trail or stepping stones in Gaelic, reflects the themes of ‘places’ and ‘moments’ that run through their music. The result of this collaboration is a rich and cohesive sound; atmospheric and textural with acoustic instruments at the heart of it.

Comprising a group of established musicians in their own right, this collective is a meeting of musical minds that traverses a diverse range of styles and backgrounds. While the overall sound is rooted in Scottish traditional music, there are undoubtedly elements of inspiration from the genres of jazz, minimalism and experimental electronica.

This ‘supergroup’ features musicians from leading bands such as Breabach, Rura and Manran: Kim Carnie (vocals), John Lowrie (Piano), Innes White (Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar), James Lindsay (Bass) and Jack Smedley (Fiddle).
