Scran

Scran consists of some of the most talented young traditional musicians in the Isle of Man, and the band has grown out of Culture Vannin’s Manx music youth movement, Bree. Guided by mentor, Paul Rogers (Mabon, Strengyn & The Fecktones), Scran members are aged between 13 and 18 and the group includes BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Musician of the Year 2018, Mera Royle on harp. Scran clinched second place in the Next Big Thing 2017 and they received glowing reviews when they performed along with Mera at the Cropedy Folk Festival this summer. Past members of Scran who feature on the Nane album include fiddle player Isla Callister, who is now studying traditional music at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and is finding musical success with her Celtic band, TRIP.

Scran give Manx music a modern, dynamic twist. Between them they play concertina, whistles, flute, harp, fiddle, banjo, guitar, electric bass and sing in Manx and English!
