Recently featured in The Scotsman as ‘One to Watch in 2018’ and winner of the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2018, Hannah Rarity’s spellbinding voice and warm, genuine stage manner have seen her become one of Scotland’s foremost young singers.
Since graduating from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in 2016, she has toured internationally with the renowned Irish-American traditional group ‘Cherish the Ladies’, appeared as a soloist on BBC Scotland’s Hogmanay Live 2016, sold out her 2017 Edinburgh Fringe debut and featured in projects for the RSNO, Scottish Chamber Orchestra and BBC Northern Ireland TV.
Hannah’s debut EP ‘Beginnings’, released in November 2016, marked an exciting chapter in her already remarkable career. Her thoughtful interpretations of traditional material, and sensitive, self-penned songs are skilfully backed by her band. Together they create intricate and fiery arrangements, which are as exciting as they are moving.
Hannah's debut album is due for release September 2018.
