BREABACH BY STUART CURNOW

Breabach (Great Britain)

Traditional music of Scotland on the border between past and future

Breabach is a Scottish folk music band formed in 2005. In 2011, they received nominations for ‘Best Group’ at both the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and the Scots Trad Music Awards.  They won Scottish Folk Band of the Year at the 2012 and Live Act of the Year in 2013. Anyway, these are good facts to know but it is better to meet this outstanding group of two back pipe players, a singer and a guitarist, a double bass player and the one woman in the band – a singer, fiddler and step dancer Megan Henderson.


Breabach not only perform traditional music, since 2005 when they first appeared in Glasgow, they have been breaking the borders of ancient and traditional music, moving it closer to young generation.
