Breabach

“Best Group (nominee) – BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards”
“Live Act of the Year – MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards 2013”
“Folk Band of the Year – MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards 2012”

The haunting strains of twin bagpipes have become a defining signature of Breabach – a chiming herald of Scottish folk being embraced by a new generation. They are often described as the new faces of Scottish Traditional Music. The energetic five-piece deliver a thrilling and unique brand of contemporary folk music and those who have seen their live show will see why the group has earned international recognition on the world and roots music scene as one of the UK’s most dynamic and influential bands.

“How catalyzing Scottish traditions with contemporary creative imagination should be done” – Scotsman

“a richly textured, highly crafted & engaging album & Breabach are magnificent live.” – fRoots

“the quintet focused on traditional Scottish and Highland tunes… the duels between the wind and violins were the sizzling highlights of their set, which ended in a rattle of micked-up Highland dancing. It’s a slightly more modern take on the Highland tradition that’s delightfully put together by this ensemble of young musicians.” – The AU Review

The musicians:
Calum MacCrimmon: highland pipes, whistles and vocals
Megan Henderson: fiddle, vocals and step-dance
Ewan Robertson: guitar and vocals
Donal Brown: highland pipes, flutes, whistles and stepdance
James Lindsay double bass
