Breabach (SCO) are one of the bands in the very frontline of the younger generation of Scottish acoustic folk, taking this music bright and alive into the 21st century without making any revolutionary changes in the core format.
Each of the band’s musicians is individually recognized for their talents and much used in other musicians’ projects. They beautifully combine traditional and original compositions in their own very organic-sounding framework and, while staying close to the trad idiom, they have occasionally reached into the wider European musical heritage.
The Breabach sound is wonderfully rounded, warm and open, more gentle than rowdy even in the faster tunes. A deservedly award-winning band many times over, they tour internationally, are simply great on stage and have a solid fan base, myself included.
