Fiùran (Sapling) is a Canadian Celtic rock group that showcases an eclectic assortment of original and traditional material with vocals sung predominantly in English and Scottish Gàidhlig. We deliver a hard hitting mix of original, reworked traditional songs into a unique blend that captures the imagination.

Fiùran was originally formed in 2016 with the goal of recording a Celtic Rock album with a mix of Scottish Gaelic (a language once predominant in Canada) and English to compete in the 2016 Juno awards. The band was originally comprised of a group of seasoned musicians who toured together in the 1970's--the lineup includes Randy Waugh (Musician, Composer, Creative Director) who is a P/T Professor of Scottish Gaelic Language and Culture at the University of Ottawa’s Department of Modern Languages and Krista Grant, Canadian and American Scottish Gaelic Mòd Gold Medalist and Rik Livesey, longtime guitarist and collaborator. As a result of this collaboration, Fiùran recorded Faodail (A Lucky Find), an EP, over the summer of 2016 and entered it in the 2016 JUNO award competition despite finding difficulty in finding a suitable category. The band decided that we had found an original voice and decided to continue on after completing the album. We have played a host of engagements in Ottawa and Toronto and recorded Friochd (A Second Drop), an LP in March of 2018. In symphony with this, the band has and continues to build a significant following on social media (Facebook, Youtube and Twitter) and on streaming services such as Spotify, iTunes and Apple Music, and has been played on radio in several countries. In identifying our niche, we decided to start work on Faoinsgeulan (Legends), our third album, which deals with the people and life situations that create the legends we have heard and continue to enjoy and difficult topics such as homelessness and depression/mental illness. We will start recording this album in late March 2019 with a release planned later in the year. The band is also planning to continue to ramp up live shows and to get to areas where most of the bands fans live.

The continuing appeal of the band has been drawing from a large mix of original material, reworked traditional songs and contemporary songs translated into Scottish Gaelic and when asked to define how the band made fans feel received such words as "alive", "happy", and "strong".
