BREABACH, winners of the Best Folk Band and Best Album gongs at the 2016 Scots Trad Music Awards, play Selby Town Hall on February 15.

The boundary-pushing Scottish folk group will be showcasing their sixth album, last October’s Frenzy Of The Meeting, a recording that builds on the ideas and experimentation of 2016’s Astar, duly developing a more expansive sonic landscape.

Alongside traditional songs and contemporary tunes are original compositions from each band member, with the material themed largely on today’s frenzied experience of global politics, media and the natural world.

Breabach combine twin bagpipes, fiddle, bass and guitar with Gaelic vocals and step dance, a brand of musicianship that has led to them playing worldwide, from Sydney Opera House to Central Park, New York.

In the line-up are Calum MacCrimmon, bagpipes, whistle, vocals, bouzouki and tromb; Ewan Robertson, acoustic and electric guitar, vocals and cajon; James Lindsay, double bass, Moog, electric guitar and vocals; James Duncan Mackenzie, bagpipes, wooden flute and whistle, and Megan Henderson, fiddle, vocals and harmonium.

"“Breabach are an exciting breath of fresh air in Scottish traditional music," says Selby Town Council arts officer Chris Jones. "With unusual instrumentation and a progressive attitude, they're really driving Celtic folk forward, picking up a bucket load of award nominations on the way and winning over fans across the globe. This promises to be a really thrilling show"

Tickets for this 8pm concert cost £16 on 01757 708449 or at or £18 on the door from 7.30pm.
