St Boswells Live! are delighted to announce a superb evening of quality music on Saturday 25th October. Headlining the show will be a specially formed line-up of the Borderlands finest folk-rock act, TARRAS. As old as time and as modern as the hour, the music of Tarras is impossible to pigeonhole. It draws heavily on the roots of folk and traditional music but reinterprets those themes with a freshness that is entirely contemporary. Through driving rhythms and soaring melodies, the sound of Tarras expresses the essence of an ancient countryside and a people who still confront the same human challenges as generation upon generation over the centuries.

“Tarras are one of the best bands ever!” Mike Harding

Tarras were first formed in 1997 when the six-piece band from the north of England borders region released two albums to great critical acclaim. Their striking songs and vigorous interpretation of traditional material saw them snapped up by major folk label Topic. Mojo magazine named their debut ‘Rising’ Album of the Month. The band – then barely out of their teens – were nominated for the BBC Folk Awards, and toured Europe and America amid rumours of short-listing for a Mercury Music Prize, before moving on to other projects in 2002.

Having successfully re-formed with the long-anticipated third album, Warn the Waters, their vision is more clear and coherent than ever, bringing their ground-breaking music back to where it deserves to be. Their live performances have gone amazingly well – appearances at top festivals including Cropredy and Celtic Connections have shown the new line up is indeed a sound to be reckoned with!

“I’ve loved Tarras for years, their new album is a phenomenal piece of work!”
John Renbourn

In 2014, Tarras announced they would be touring as a trio – Tarras Minor – to allow for a range of other commitments, but thanks to some gentle persuasion, they are playing as a blazing 5-piece for one night only. This will be a genuinely unique occasion, available only on 25th October at St Boswells Village Hall.

Supporting Tarras will be Ipswich-based singer-songwriter Hannah Scott, making a return visit after her acclaimed performance in 2012. Hannah’s latest collection of songs, The Space In Between, sees her collaborate with producer and multi-instrumentalist Stefano, whose influence and direction have been key to her progression both as a songwriter and performer. Her songs are personal, moving and uplifting, and with a voice to melt to hardest of hearts we are sure you’ll love her as much as we do.
