Manran have quite literally rocketed to the top of the Scottish music scene with their powerful combination of Gaelic and English songs.
Driving accordion, fiddle, flute and a backline of drums and bass to make any mouth water.
It was clear in June 2010 that the time had come for the six friends to unite and uphold the fresh, unstoppable sound of modern Gaelic Scotland. Since then, Manran have performed at festivals in Europe and Scotland - highlights being Celtica, Italy and the Hebridean Celtic Festival in Lewis.
Manran brought in the New Year as the house band for the BBC Alba Hogmanay Show in 2010, and in 2011 have performed as part of Celtic Connections, supporting Junkera.
Norrie MacIver (vocals, guitar), Gary Innes (accordion, keyboards), Ewen Henderson (fiddle, highland pipes, whistle, vocals), Calum Stewart (uilleann pipes, wooden flute), Ross Saunders (bass guitar, vocals) and Scott MacKay (drums, percussion) with guest Phil Cunningham (piano, keyboards).
"Manran are an exceptionally talented bunch of guys that are taking the music world by storm with their high energy, stomping tunes and phenomenal Gaelic/English songs." (Donald Shaw, Celtic Connections)
