Details

Born of a session in Paisley, Scotland, and named for the town's historic weaving industry and 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 and lullabies, and humorous tales of life in Scotland.

In 2021 they have been joined by exciting piper and fiddle player Iain MacGillivray, who is also Scotland's youngest Clan leader. Iain, a fluent Gaelic speaker, has worked on such exciting productions as Outlander and Men in Kilts, and has performed for a huge list of stars and dignitaries in recent years. As the band celebrate the nomination of their 18th recording, Òrach (“Golden” in Gaelic) as album of the year, and themselves as band of the year, they are firmly established as one of the premier groups on the concert stage.  From reflective ballads to footstomping reels and jigs, the variety and range of the material they perform is matched only by their enthusiasm and lively Celtic spirits.

The band comprises Roy Gullane on guitar and lead vocals, Phil Smillie on flute, whistles, bodhran and harmony vocals, Ian MacGillivray on highlands bagpipes, fiddle and whistles and Malcolm Bushby on fiddle, bouzouki and harmony vocals.

They will be appearing at Threlkeld Village Hall on Friday, 2nd September at 8pm. Tickets £12 (£6 under 18) from village PO, Village Hall Coffee Shop and on-line at www.threlkeldvillagehall.org/whats-on.  Tickets bought on-line will be available for collection from the Box Office on the night.
