WHAT'S ON / Breabach
Breabach are often described as the new faces of Scottish traditional music and they were voted Best Group and Live Act of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards 2013 and nominated for Best Group at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2014.
Featuring Calum MacCrimmon (pipes/whistles/bouzouki), Ewan Robertson (guitar/vocals), James Mackenzie (pipes/flute/whistles), Megan Henderson (fiddle/vocals/stepdance) and James Lindsay (double bass & winner of 2014 Martyn Bennett Prize), the band's innovative Celtic style shows flare, excitement and diversity rarely seen from such a young group.
Since winning the Open Stage Award at Celtic Connections 2005, Breabach’s star has been on the rise, an ascent that continues with the release of their fourth album, Ùrlar.
"Breabach once again displayed all the artfulness, ambition and imagination that set them so decisively apart from the pack." (The Scotsman)
