Hello and Happy New Year to all!
We are all very excited for 2012 here in Breabach. First of all we have Celtic Connections – performing with our pals Le Vent Du Nord in the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on 21/01/12, then on 28/01/12 we have our own gig in the Concert Hall, Strathclyde Suite with the great Corquieu. We are very much looking forward to meeting them and sharing our music with each other.
