The popular Scottish folk group Fara are coming to Halesworth this weekend.

As part of their UK-wide tour, the quartet from Orkney, plus three fiddles and a piano, will perform in The Cut on Sunday February 11.

Of their first three years together as a band, Fara said: “We’ve all known each other since we were children, but the process of working together as adults has created a real Fara sisterhood, which has quickly become an important part of all of our musical lives.

“The four contrasting personalities and individual musical voices in Fara, make for a colourful melting pot of ideas during arranging sessions - each member brings a different musical pallet to the table. But the strong Orkney fiddle tradition that we all grew up with is the glue that binds us together, being at the heart of all of our musical characters”.
