Manran...welcome return to village

One of the hit acts of this year’s Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow comes to the, er, slightly smaller community of Crawforddjohn on Friday night.

Playing at the Village Hall will be trad-rock band Manran whose audience at the city festival was 125,000, via live streaming worldwide.

TThe band is now in its eighth year and has released three award-winning albums; their latest two singles have reached No 1 in the World iTunes chart. They are truly looking forwards to Friday’s gig at Crawfordjohn given the warm reception they were given last time they played there.

Said accordion-player Gary Innes: “We absolutely love playing in Crawfordjohn; it’s always such a brilliant atmosphere and the crowd is second-to-none.”

The gig is at 8pm, tickets available via https://www.wegottickets.com/event/428555.
