Description

Named for Scottish poet Robert Tannahill, the Tannahill Weavers create music that is steeped in history yet brings the Scottish musical tradition forward into the present day. With innovative arrangements blending the beauty of traditional melodies with the power of modern rhythms, the group embraces the rollicking, even brawling qualities of Lowland Anglo-Scots tunes but never loses sight of the almost mystical Highland Celtic core. "The penetrating sound of the Highland bagpipes is a thread of ancient memory running through it all," say the Tannahill Weavers, widely acclaimed as Scotland's finest traditional band. The band's diverse repertoire spans the centuries with fiery instrumentals, topical songs, and original ballads. These versatile musicians have received worldwide accolades consistently over the years for exuberant performances and outstanding recording efforts that seemingly can't get better, yet continue to do just that.
