“As polished as it was passionate, matching fiery intensity with exquisite finesse, this was a magnificent set.” – The Scotsman ★★★★★
Securely ranked among Scotland’s most skilled and imaginative contemporary folk acts, Breabach unites deep roots in Highland and Island tradition with the innovative musical ferment of their Glasgow base. They have released six increasingly acclaimed albums while fueling their creative appetites in collaborations with indigenous Australasian artists, Quebec’s Le Vent du Nord, and most recently as artists-in-residence at 2019’s Celtic Colours festival with Cape Bretoners, Beolach.
Breabach are Megan Henderson (Fiddle/Vocals), James Lindsay (Double Bass/Moog/Vocals), Calum MacCrimmon (Highland Bagpipe/Whistle/Bouzouki/Vocals), Conal McDonagh (Highland Bagpipe/Uilleann pipes/Whistle/Vocals) and Ewan Robertson (Guitar/Cajon/Vocals). Their 17-year adventure has included live performances from Sydney Opera House to Central Park New York. They have racked up an impressive array of accolades including five Scots Trad Music Awards, nominations as ‘Best Group’ in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, and ‘European Album of the Year’ in The Songlines Music Awards
