Breabach continue to build their reputation of being at the forefront of the UK’s world and roots music scene with performances across the world throughout 2019 and with the release of their 6th critically acclaimed studio album ‘Frenzy of the Meeting’.
The band who won BBC Scotland Album of the Year 2016 for their last album ‘Astar’ also clinched Band of the Year at the same awards. Their unique musicianship, combining twin bagpipes, fiddle, bass and guitar with Gaelic vocals and step dance has won them fans across the globe and saw them once again nominated as finalists in both the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and the Songlines Music Awards.
Having traversed the world, Breabach have appeared at festivals and venues ranging from the Sydney Opera House, Ulsan World Music Festival South Korea to Central Park New York and Womad New Zealand. 2019 has seen them tour all over the UK, Germany, Austria, Spain and Canada as well as performing at some of Europe’s most prestigious festivals including Tønder (Denmark), Heb Celt (Scotland), Boomtown Fair and Wickham (England) to name a few. Now planning tour periods in 2020, they seem set to be busier than ever.
