Hello everyone,

Hope you’re all enjoying the summer so far! Since our last update we’ve been laying quite low, however we did manage a fun weekend up at Skye Live, a visit to Germany for Festspiele Mecklenburg (where we also got to work with the local youth orchestra) as well as fitting in a few marathons and cycle sportifs for good measure! Now though over in Breabach HQ we’re getting the clothes packed, pipes tuned and suncream applied (optimistic) for our run of summer festivals which kicks off this coming weekend. First stop is the Byre in the Botanics series in St Andrews with our good pals – amazing Orcadian band Fara. Should be a great evening in the park! We then head straight down south to Priddy Folk Festival where we will be closing out the Sunday evening. Hope to see you there! The following weekends will see us visiting Tiree, Lewis, Trowbridge, Cambridge, Aboyne, Belladrum, Crieff and Italy. Full details below.


September sees us returning to Canada following up on last summers amazing tour. We start off with a bang at the Fort Henry Kitchen Party before heading on for a few shows at Ontario Small Halls, gigs in London ON, Peterborough ON and the Contact East Showcase in NB. Should be a fun few weeks.
