A lovely bunch of Scottish blokes called Mànran are on a musical mission to take over the UK Charts.
And TFC is 100% behind them – Tim & I have more than a little Scottish blood in us AND we love good tunes from all over !
Who are Mànran ????
“Mànran is a mouthwatering new line-up of well-kent young talent – Norrie MacIver (guitar/vocals), Gary Innes (accordion), Ewen Henderson (fiddle/pipes), Calum Stewart (flutes/uilleann pipes), Ross Saunders (bass) and Scott Mackay (drums) – performing songs in Gaelic and English alongside fiery instrumental sets.” – Celtic Connections Website.
Their song “Latha Math” is available as a download and they are trying to get it to Number One !!
Here’s the song AND make sure you turn your foot tapping smileyness into downloading action at Mànran’s website!!!
And here’s the boys’ latest message: “What a week guys! We’re speechless at the enthusiasm and effort you’ve made for the cause… Regardless of the final figures, thank you, thank you, thank you so much.”
TFC is very happy to have been part of an effort that has spanned the world. Not a bad wee effort !
