About Kinnaris Quintet & Guests with Ciaran Ryan Band and Gangar
Renowned for having a style quite like no other - powerful, fresh, euphoric, raw, enigmatic and emotive - Kinnaris Quintet have quickly become the must-see act on the live music scene. Bold, sparkling arrangements and performances are laced with a contagious on-stage exuberance and joyful enthusiasm, as anyone who has seen this band live will attest. Based in Glasgow (Scotland), Kinnaris Quintet take influences of traditional Scottish, Irish, Bluegrass, Classical, Scandinavian and Appalachian music, and create technically dazzling, evocative arrangements. Kinnaris Quintet have produced the perfect concoction of remaining faithful to their traditional roots, whilst delicately pushing the boundaries of tradition, bringing it to the forefront of exciting and modern music. For this performance, Kinnaris Quintet will also be joined by special guests Julie Fowlis and Karine Polwart.
Already a veteran performer having toured the worlds stages for a decade, predominantly as a founding member of world-folk band Dallahan and as a highly sought after session musician, Ciaran Ryan is quietly becoming recognised as one of the foremost tenor banjo players the UK has ever produced. He now releases his second solo album Occupational Hazards, bringing his prolific writing and stage experience firmly to the front with a show of all-original music, loosely grown out of his traditional Irish music upbringing that nod towards the idioms of rock, EDM and post-punk.
Norway's Gangar brings a fresh take on Nordic roots music. The young, five-piece ensemble digs deep into Norway's extensive folk music archives to come up with rare traditional tunes. -- and give them new, modern arrangements influenced by rock, folk-metal, and jazz improvisation. Inspired by such artists as Hoven Droven, Meshuggah, and AC/DC, Gangar's sound is driven by the unique sound of Norway's Hardanger fiddle. Once vilified as "the devil's instrument" in folktales and banned in churches, the hardanger is now celebrated as the country's national instrument, and gives Gangar its distinctive skin. The band's mission is to bring traditional Norwegian melodies a wider audience.
