Detox plans are currently in action after a busy and incredibly fun January. Having returned from our trip to the Woodford Folk Festival, Brisbane (top, top festival – too much fun) and a week of rehearsals in New Zealand, we were thrown straight back into the throng of Celtic Connections in Glasgow. What a great couple of weeks, individually taking in gigs at the SSE Hydro, Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Mitchell Theatre and getting involved in many sessions and much late night debauchery – but now it’s time to look to the future.
Breabach in Australian/New Zealand 2014
This March we head back down under to take in some of the amazing festivals that are on offer. We are going to be travelling widely from, Adelaide to Melbourne, New Plymouth to Sydney and more to be announced! Check out the dates below and keep an eye on our website and social media and hopefully we’ll see you out there!
Furthermore, our most recent album Ùrlar is being officially released in Australia/New Zealand on PLANET (07/03/14).
|7-8th||Port Fairy Folk Festival, Australia|
|9-10th||WOMADelaide, Botanic Park, Adelaide|
|11th||Brunswick Music Festival, Australia|
|14th-16th||Womad New Zealand, Taranaki, NZ|
|23rd||10 Days on the Island Festival, Tasmania, Australia|
|5th||Homeground Festival, Sydney Opera House, Australia|
Our appearance at WOMAD New Zealand and the Homeground Festival, Sydney will be filled with added excitement as we premiere a brand new cross-cultural collaboration. At the start of 2014, we were lucky enough to gather together with musicians from AUS & NZ to put together a new show which will form part of the 2014 Commonwealth celebrations. The BOOMERANG project is comprised of Breabach, Moana & the Tribe, Horomona Horo (NZ), Shellie Morris, Casey Donovan, Djakapurra Munyarryun, Tim Bishop (AUS). It’s going to be a massive celebration of Celtic, Aboriginal and Maori cultures, through the medium of language, music, and dance. Hope you can join us as we take this show back to Scotland in July.
Radio 2 Folk Awards
We are very much looking forward to joining everyone at the Radio 2 Folk Awards this month which takes place in the Royal Albert Hall, London. You can tune in on radio 2 from 8pm on 19/02/14 or you can watch from the red button! We are totally delighted to be considered for a nomination and just want to wish everyone all the best of luck for this night.
From April-May we will be touring the UK and visiting many places we missed from the last leg of the Ùrlar tour. Take a look at the dates at the bottom on this post and hopefully we can see you at a gig in your area! Keep an eye on the site for more news – www.breabach.com
