The Tannahill Weavers
Traditional Celtic music at its best! With fire-driven instrumentals, topical songs, haunting ballads and a good dose of humour, the Tannahill Weavers have transformed traditional material and brought it into the modern world, vitally alive and kicking.
Members of the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame, in 2019 the Tannahill Weavers were nominated for Folk Band of the Year in Scotland. Recently they have been joined by piper Iain MacGillivray, who is Scotland’s youngest Clan leader and has worked recently on such exciting productions as Outlander and Men in Kilts and has performed for a huge list of stars and dignitaries in recent years.
Formed from a Paisley pub session in 1968, seminal trailblazers the Tannahill Weavers now also rank as national treasures. -Glasgow Celtic Connections 2018
The music may be pure old time Celtic, but the drive and enthusiasm are akin to straight ahead rock and roll. -Winnipeg Free Press
An especially eloquent mixture of the old and the new. - New York Times
