Hannah Rarity and Anna Massie
with support from Finding Kemback
Queen Margaret Hall - 53 Blackness Rd, Linlithgow EH49 7JA, UK
Two of the leading young performers on the traditional music scene in Scotland - Hannah Rarity and Anna Massie â are coming to Linlithgow for a special concert on Friday December 8th in Queen Margaret Hall.Â Â Building on a fast-growing reputation, Hannah Rarity ranks as one of Scotlandâs finest singers. Performing a carefully chosen mix of traditional, contemporary, and self-penned material, she earns comparisons to Eva Cassidy and Cara Dillon, whilst standing confidently in her own right.
Widely recognised as a flourishing talent after winning the BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year in 2018, Hannah was tipped by The Scotsman as âOne to Watchâ and, more recently, was invited to work as co-musical director for the Opening Concert of Celtic Connections 2022.
Anna Massie is the current presenter of âTravelling Folkâ on BBC Radio Scotland. Equally at home as accompanist or melody player, Anna is one of Scotlandâs foremost guitarists. A skilled multi-instrumentalist, she also excels on the fiddle, mandolin, and tenor banjo. Renowned for her work with Blazinâ Fiddles, Mairearad Green and RANT, her reputation as a producer, presenter and musical director grows with each passing project. Three-time nominee for Best Instrumentalist at the Scots Trad Music Awards, she is a highly talented musician ââ¦lively, often witty arrangements with Anna Massieâs deft banjo and guitar compelling at the heart.â Colin Irwin, MOJO
