Breabach

Breabach

Scots Trad Music Awards and BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards nominees

Traditional music of Scotland

Breabach is one of the most inventive and diverse bands to have emerged from the Scottish folk scene in recent years. Nominated in the Scots Trad Music Awards for Best Up and Coming Artist in 2006 and Best Folk Band in 2007, 2008, 2010, and 2011, Breabach’s huge sound is dominated by the twin bagpipes of Calum MacCrimmon and James Duncan Mackenzie. This uncompromising force is complemented by the extraordinary fiddle playing and step dancing of Megan Henderson and is further supported by the charismatic and propulsive guitar playing of Ewan Robertson, named BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2008, and the versatile double bass playing of James Lindsay.

As one of the most versatile outfits to grace the folk scene, Breabach never fails to impress their audience with their collective charm and talents. Ewan Roberston and Megan Henderson share the vocal duties while multi-instrumentalists Calum MacCrimmon and James Duncan Mackenzie alternate between pipes, flute, and whistles.
