"…the duels between the wind and violins were...sizzling highlights"

- The AU Review

With their fiery brand of highland pipes, gaelic voices, step dance and some epic bagpipe and violin duels, the five-piece Scottish folk group Breabach are gaining thousands of fans round the world, including right here in Aotearoa where they hit the Top 40 album charts with Urlar in 2014.

The thrilling and unique brand of folk music served up by this talented ensemble has world- and roots-music fans from Australia to South Korea, Canada to Europe rapidly re-claiming their Scottish heritage.

This special Festival concert unites Calum MacCrimmon (pipes/whistles/ bouzouki), Ewan Robertson (guitar/vocals), James Mackenzie (pipes/flute/whistles) and Megan Henderson (fiddle/ vocals/stepdance) and James Lindsay (double bass).
