Fronted by the bagpipes and whistles of Calum MacCrimmon and James Duncan Mackenzie and the fiddle, step-dance and lead vocals of Megan Henderson, and underpinned by James Lindsay's double bass and Ewan Robertson's guitar, Breabach command the stage with flair, charisma and a sound that is as expansive as it is distinct. Their repertoire fuses traditional and contemporary songs and instrumentals, displaying passion for their musical heritage alongside eagerness to explore and challenge boundaries. Recent line-up changes have given a new edge and focus to what was already one of the most celebrated and successful Scottish groups of modern times, voted Best Folk Band in the 2012 Scots Trad Music Awards.

'Intriguingly distinctive, confident of purpose and rich in dynamic drama' Songlines
