BREABACH

Supported by Speldosa

Breabach are often described as the new faces of Scottish Traditional music. Their career has already seen them voted Best Group and Live Act of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards and nominated for Best Group at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and European Folk Group of the Year at the German Folk Awards.

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), the band's innovative Celtic style shows flare, excitement and diversity rarely seen from such a young group.

"Breabach once again displayed all the artfulness, ambition and imagination that set them so decisively apart from the pack." - Scotsman

Support comes from Speldosa, a contemporary folk trio based in Newcastle Upon Tyne. Playing hammer dulcimer, clarsach (Scottish harp), fiddles and vocals, the trio perform a wide variety of traditional, contemporary and self-penned material from around the world.

2014 saw Speldosa become New Roots finalists, in addition to performing at Sidmouth Folk Week, Whitby Folk Week, St. Alban's Folk Festival and the debut Wardle Folk Festival.

Part of The Big Whistle Festival.
