“The music may be pure old time Celtic, but the drive & enthusiasm are akin to straight ahead rock & roll.”~ Winnipeg Free Press. Born of a session in Paisley, Scotland & named for the town’s historic weaving industry & local poet laureate Robert Tannahill, the Tannahill Weavers have made an international name for their special brand of Celtic music, blending the beauty of traditional melodies with the power of modern rhythms. As one of the world’s premier traditional Celtic bands, their diverse repertoire spans the centuries with fire-driven instrumentals, topical songs, original ballads & lullabies & humorous tales of life in Scotland. As they release their 18th recording, “Òrach” (“Golden” in Gaelic) to celebrate their 50th anniversary, they are firmly established as one of the premier groups on the concert stage. From reflective ballads to footstomping reels & jigs, the variety & range of the material they perform is matched only by their enthusiasm & lively Celtic spirits. “Formed from a Paisley pub session in 1968, seminal trailblazers the Tannahill Weavers now also rank as national treasures.” ~ Glasgow Celtic Connections 2018. “An especially eloquent mixture of the old & the new.” – New York Times.
