Tarras welcome back after nine long years
Last updated at 13:41, Thursday, 15 March 2012
BORDER band Tarras bring their traditional folk sound to Kendal tomorrow night.
The six-piece band hail from the North of England and Scottish borders, and play an upbeat blend of traditional and self-penned songs.
One of the most exciting bands to emerge on the folk scene for some time, their instruments include the accordion, violin and cittern.
Fused with drums, bass, piano and guitar the unsual combination creates a traditional yet at the same time cutting edge and contemporary sound. After a well-earned nine-year break, the band return with their distinctive style and a few new faces.
With record deals on both sides of the Atlantic, the band have received acclaim in high places.
Tarras gained folk album of the month in Mojo magazine, four stars in Q magazine and shortlisted at the Radio 2 folk awards.
They will be playing material from their two acclaimed albums, as well as songs from brand new record Warn The Waters.
The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets are available from the venue’s box office.
