Neath the Gloaming Star

by Hannah Rarity

Warm-toned yet delicately poised, it demonstrated Rarity’s ability to utterly inhabit a song.”

The Scotsman

Hannah Rarity’s sublime voice imbues the music she performs with a depth of emotion that is inimitable. It’s this ability that has seen her become one of Scotland’s foremost young singers. Winner of BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2018, her status as a rising talent has been further consolidated by her Scots Singer of the Year nomination at the 2017 Scots Trad Music Awards and feature as ‘One to Watch in 2018’ in The Scotsman.

Her powerful vocals have been well-suited to her collaborations and performances with esteemed musical acts such as Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, her international touring with Irish-American band Cherish the Ladies, as well as national television appearances – BBC Hogmanay Live, BBC N.I. Wayfaring Stranger – and UK festivals such as - Orkney, Tiree, Celtic Connections.

Hannah follows up her acclaimed EP Beginnings (“…in the same league as the likes of Cara Dillon when it comes to softly-sung tender emotion...Hers is definitely a name to watch” - fRoots) with the release of her hotly anticipated debut album Neath the Gloaming Star in September 2018, which features some of Scotland’s most sought after young musical talent, as well as folk legend, Phil Cunningham. The album features interpretations of songs from the folk genre she embraces so effortlessly, which includes Scots song from a number of sources, self-penned tracks and heart-wrenching covers of some of Scotland’s greatest songwriters, including Davy Steele’s Rose O’ Summerlee and Silly Wizard frontman Andy M. Stewart’s ‘Where Are You (Tonight, I Wonder)?’.
