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. 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.

Often described as the new faces of Scottish Traditional music, their career has already seen them voted ‘Best Group’ and ‘Best Live Act’ at the Scots Trad Music Awards as well as being nominated twice as ‘Best Band’ at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Breabach unite the thrilling talents of Calum MacCrimmon (pipes/whistles/  bouzouki),  Ewan Robertson (guitar/vocals),James  Mackenzie (pipes/flute/whistles), Megan Henderson (fiddle/ vocals/stepdance) and James Lindsay (double bass) and ever since launching their career as winners of an Open Stage Award at Celtic Connections 2005, Breabach’s star has been steeply on the rise, an ascent that continues with the release of their fourth album, Ùrlar.
