Artist Intro: The Chair

The Chair (SCO) are an eight-piece, very groovin’ and very, very fab band with that big Celtic funky spirit, from Orkney.

A semi-rock outfit (drs & bass plus folk instruments), they play an irresistible brand of what I call “fortified Scottish folk” = original tunes in the trad vein but played with that big sound and driven by the rhythm section – this music always has me tapping my foot and smiling like a happy idiot. They are not as heavily funky as, say The Elephant Sessions; the beat is a bit lighter and folkier here but is serious 😉

There may not be any highbrow artistic ambitions present here but, by all Celtic gods, it kicks ass. Wish to see them live one day and really party!
