Autumn 2015

Hope you all have had a great summer!  It’s been a successful few months over here in Breabach land. June and July saw us take in great coast to coast tour of Canada visiting some amazing festivals and meeting friends & family, old and new – thanks to all that helped make it happen. You can check out our photo album from the trip over on the Facebook HERE. Since returning we managed a quick trip to the Lorient Interceltique Festival which was brilliant but mainly we’ve been hidden away in rehearsal rooms all of August preparing material for our new album…

 

New album ‘Astar’

We’re delighted to announce our next album entitled ‘Astar’ which translates from Gaelic as distance or journey. The album reflects on the travels we have been fortunate enough to make over the last few years, the people that have inspired us along the way and the influences that we have carried back home with us. For the recording sessions we are returning to the brilliant Castlesound Studios in Pencaitland where we recorded Ùrlar back in 2013 under the watchful eye of engineer supremo Stuart Hamilton. The studio space is just perfect for the way we work and will once again allow us to record in our natural environment – live. In the producers chair we are delighted to welcome in Greg Lawson. Known for his work as principal violin in the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra as well as genre bending group Moishe’s bagel Greg has been inspiring us for many years now. In January 2015 Greg premiered his newly orchestrated adaptation of Martyn Bennet’s GRIT to critical acclaim and as part of the orchestra, Calum experienced first hand what a driven, enthusiastic and excited musical director Greg was. We’re all very buzzed up about where he will take the Breabach sound.
