Mànran are one of the most well-known and best-loved Scottish bands on the scene today. The 2011 launch of their debut single, “Latha Math” heralded a meteoric rise to the top of the Scottish music world that quickly saw them begin to play many of the most prestigious festivals around the world. From then, multi-award-winning albums followed as the band continued to live up to the hype that surrounded their early release, while establishing their characteristic sound and distinctive approach to musical arrangements.

Now with three studio albums under their belt and seven years of blowing audiences away with healthy amounts of passion, poise, virtuosity and vigour, Mànran are not slowing down and continue to explore new musical and geographical territory.

Tha Mànran cho ainmeil is cho aithnichte ri còmhlan Albannach a tha a’ cluich an-diugh. On a dh’fhoillsich iad a’ chiad òran, “Latha Math”, tha iad a-nise stèidhichte mar aon de na prìomh chòmhlain ann an Alba agus iad air cluich aig cuid de na fèisean as ainmeile san t-saoghal. On uair sin, tha iad air clàran a tha air iomadach duais a chosnadh fhoillseachadh, agus stèidhich iad an stoidhle-ciùil agus an stoidhle-rèiteachaidh aca fhèin.

Tha Mànran air trì clàran fhoillseachadh agus air luchd-èisteachd air feadh an t-saoghail a chur dhachaigh ann an deagh shunnd. Tha na sàr-chluicheadairean seo a’ leantainn orra a’ lorg dhòighean ùra gus tlachd a thoirt don luchd-èisteachd san nòs ùr inntinneach aca fhèin.


HECLA is a traditional music trio based in the Outer Hebrides. Featuring Ailis Sutherland (pipes/whistle), Ilona Kennedy (fiddle) and Kaitlin Ross (guitar/vocals), Hecla present beautiful, crisp and energetic arrangements of traditional Gaelic songs and instrumentals. The trio has performed in showcases at Celtic Connections, Piping Live and the award winning HebCelt Festival, and on Celtic Music Radio. The band takes its name from Hecla – the beautiful and enigmatic hill in South Uist, which can be seen from Lews Castle College where the trio are currently completing the BA (Hons) in Applied Music with the University of the Highlands and Islands.

’S e còmhlan-ciùil traidiseanta stèidhichte anns na h-Eileanan an Iar a th’ ann an Hecla. Le Ailis Shutharlannach (pìob agus fìdeag), Ilona Cheanadach (fidheall) agus Kaitlin Ros (giotàr agus seinn), tha an dreach a chuireas Hecla air òrain is fuinn Ghàidhlig grinn, inntinneach is beothail. Tha iad air pàirt a ghabhail aig fèisean mar Celtic Connections, Piping Live agus Fèis Cheilteach Innse Gall, is tha iad air nochdadh air an stèisean rèidio, ‘Ceòl Ceilteach’. Tha ainm a’ chòmhlain a’ tighinn on chnoc àlainn, Hecla, ann an Uibhist a Deas, cnoc a chithear o Cholaiste Chaisteil Leòdhais, far a bheil an triùir nigheanan a’ cuir crìoch air cùrsa BA (Hons) ann an Eòlas-ciùil Gnìomhach aig Oilthigh na Gàidhealteachd agus nan Eilean.
