Breabach unite the huge talents of Calum MacCrimmon (pipes/whistles/bouzouki), Ewan Robertson (guitar/vocals), James Mackenzie (pipes/flute/whistles), Megan Henderson (fiddle/ vocals/stepdance) and James Lindsay (double bass)and since launching their career in 2005, Breabach's star has been steeply on the rise and they are now firmly established as Scotland's leading folk band.

"How catalyzing Scottish traditions with contemporary creative imagination should be done" Scotsman

"Breabach are magnificent live." Froots


To simply call Kris Drever "a folksinger" would be like saying that LAU, the acclaimed band in which he also sings and plays, is "a Scottish folk trio" Both true descriptions but reductive ones that only hint at the progressive joys contained in the music of each. His latest album If Wishes Were Horses marks ten years as a solo artist and is a collection of semi-biographical songs covering the universal, and not so universal, themes of education, politics, sex, love, ennui, self-employment, social migration and Shetland.

"Immense yet ultra-supple sophistication, musicianship of the first order.. a breath of fresh air" Songlines

"Kris Drever has all the makings of a solo celebrity" The Guardian

"A serious talent" Mojo
