Event Navigation

FRAS are a fresh, dynamic Highland quintet playing West Coast Highland music with a unique flare and drive from accordion, guitar, bagpipes, banjo and flute.

Fresh from the release of their outstanding debut album ‘Dile’, local heroes Fras are a band forged in mighty west coast sessions and great friendships. From thunderous tunes to sublime melodies, the music is performed with the charisma and swagger befitting the abilities of the five band-mates. Cromartys Angus Binnie is the Angus Young of pipers, Glenelgs Murdo Yogi’ Camerons guitar drives the tunes forward like a steam train, Kirsten Macleod on accordion and Colin Masterton on flutes and whistles display dazzling dexterity, and Arisaigs own adopted son Thomas Kinsella is the worlds greatest banjo player, according to him..!” – Fèis na Mara

Wild West Highland days and storming tune-fuelled nights have formed Fras. Their debut album, dile, is a bracing shower of melodies, a downpour of thundering rhythm with the occasional promise of sunshine.

Tha laithean garbh na Gàidhealtachd ‘s oidhcheannan fliucha ceòlmhor air Fras a chruthachadh. Tha an ciad clàr aca, dìle, na fras phort, na dhìle ruitheam le deagh theans de ghreisean ghrèine.
