Mánran to play Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury

Multi award-winning band Mànran will play Theatre Severn on Friday, 14 February, bringing their lively, infectious sets to audiences in Shrewsbury this winter.

2020 will mark ten years at the heart of the Scottish Traditional music scene for the folk supergroup. Having been in high demand as a live act across the world with shows in over 30 countries, Mànran are looking forward to playing to Shrewsbury audiences next month.

Mànran will celebrate their anniversary year with the unveiling of two new band members in the shape of Gaelic songstress Kim Carnie and guitar-maestro Aidan Moodie. This exciting new line-up was unveiled for the first time when Mànran headlined the Hogmanay Show on Scotland’s BBC Alba channel (you can still catch the show here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/p02fqv63/ceilidh-na-bliadhn-ire

As they look forward to a packed year with the launch of a celebratory festival Mànran: 10 by the Ben in April 2020 in Fort William in the Highlands of Scotland, as well as the release of their fourth studio album, Mànran are gearing up for some fantastic live show dates in England before embarking on what looks set to be their busiest year yet. 

Mànran’s accordion player and founding member Gary Innes, who also presents BBC Radio Scotland’s longest-running radio show ‘Take The Floor’, said: “We’re really looking forward to playing Shrewsbury and to see fans old and new at the Severn Theatre join us for a brilliant night of live music and good fun. It’s been an amazing few years for the band and we can’t wait to celebrate our 10th year in style in 2020.”

Internationally recognised as one of the most iconic and respected Scottish bands on the road today, the seven-piece show no signs of slowing down as they continue to push boundaries and explore new musical and geographical territory each year, bringing their uplifting and unique live performances to stages across the world.
