Securely ranked among Scotland’s most skilled and imaginative contemporary folk acts, Breabach unite deep roots in Highland and Island tradition with the innovative musical ferment of their Glasgow base. They have released six increasingly acclaimed albums, whilst fuelling their creative appetites in collaborations with indigenous Australasian artists Moana and the Tribe & The Black Arm Band, Quebec’s Le Vent du Nord, video game composer Big Giant Circles and as artists-in-residence at the 2019 Celtic Colours festival.

Their many accolades include 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. Breabach show no sign of slowing their creative endeavours with imminent tours and festival appearances across the UK, Europe and the US to mark the release of their 7th studio album ‘Fàs’.

Expect an upbeat night of step dance, fiddle, double bass, bagpipes, whistles, bouzouki, guitar and powerful singing in English & Gaelic. Over 17 years, Breabach have entertained audiences from the Sydney Opera House to Central Park NY.

“As polished as it was passionate, matching fiery intensity with exquisite finesse, this was a magnificent set.” – The Scotsman ★★★★★

“Breabach are in an electrifying new phase–one that illustrates the band’s strength and interest in experimentation. Exhilarating, energetic and accomplished.” – Songlines ★★★★
