2017 was a fascinating year for Breabach. The end of 2016 saw them win the Scots Trad awards, taking away two titles Folk Band of the Year‚ and Album of the Year. They went on to be finalists in the Uk wide BBC Radio 2 awards as Band of the Year and in Songlines Magazine as European album of the year.

The album was celebrated with a packed performance in the City Halls during Celtic Connections where many of the collaborators on the album made the journey to Glasgow earning the show five star reviews.

With and increasingly mature repertoire and live performance the band continue to build their reputation of being at the forefront of the UK’s world and roots music scene.

Their unique musicianship combining twin bagpipes, fidde, mandolin, bass and guitar with Gaelic vocals and step dance has won them fans across the globe and saw a summer packed full of European festival appearances. Germany, France, Sweden and Italy have all been visited with their writing skills being ustilised by the Mozartina festival in Gdansk to incorporate Mozart into their set!

Closing the year with a three week tour of Canada the band are looking forward to a busy 2018 when they kick the year off with tours of the Uk and Australia before heading into the studio to record their next album. The summer sees them heading over to the Canada and the US for what promises to be another packed festival season.

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