SCOTTISH duo Mairearad Green and Anna Massie will launch their fourth album Farran at the Square and Compass pub at Worth Matravers on Sunday, November 4 from 9pm.

The pair will follow up the album launch with a UK tour.

Given that Mairearad grew up by Achnahaird bay and is now living by the sea in Ullapool and Anna is from the village of Fortrose by the Moray Firth, it is not surprising that there is a marine themed title and cover illustration for this duo’s fourth album.

The album is called Farran, which is the Scots word for the starboard side of a boat.

The concept for this duo’s fourth album is to represent exactly what this virtuosic duo perform live. It is the stripped back sound of vocals, guitar, accordion, fiddle and bagpipes and it was recorded live at Gloworm studio in Glasgow with co-producer, Calum MacCrimmon from the band, Breabach.

Entry to the album launch is free. See or call 01929 439229 for more information.
