Music Programme 2019

Scottish traditional folk music is hurled into the future by Breabach’s new ideas and raw energy. The five musicians involved have all deep roots in the tradition, and their latest album Frenzy of the Meeting (2018) they continue to explore new routes for the music. The frantic dance tunes are played on fiddle, pipes and flutes, which then change character completely to accompany the exquisite songs. All in all, it’s intense and extremely varied music melding past and future. Breabach have achieved enviable status at home, winning Scot Trad Music Awards for best live band and best folk band, plus nominations for BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Breabach are: Megan Henderson (violin and song), James Lindsay (double bass and song), Calum MacCrimmon (bagpipes, flutes, bouzouki and song), James Duncan Mackenzie (bagpipes and flutes) and Ewan Robertson (guitar, song and cajon). Only Danish festival concert in 2019.
