Marking their 15th anniversary, Breabach stop off at Mareel as part of their European tour.
Winning Album of The Year with Frenzy of the Meeting (2018) at the BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards 2019, the five piece have gone from strength to strength.
Uniting Megan Henderson (Fiddle, Vocals), James Lindsay (Double Bass, Vocals), Calum MacCrimmon (Bagpipes, Whistle, Bouzouki, Vocals), James Duncan Mackenzie (Bagpipes, Flute, Whistle) and Ewan Robertson (Guitar, Vocals, Cajon), the quintet respect the origins of both the music they play and the roots of the band.
Alongside traditional songs, contemporary tunes and original compositions, the material is largely inspired by today’s frenzied experience of global politics, media and the natural world, as well as the thriving Glasgow music scene, where the band are based.
