The summer's here and we're hitting the road all over the place for a run of festival dates!
Fad an t-Sàmhraidh, a h-uile Sàmhradh!
After a brief bit of time-off to allow people to holiday, work on new material and get married, we're getting back on the road! Looking forward to touring the new album material closer to home.
Many thanks and, indeed, vielen dank to everyone who came to see us on our recent tour of Germany! We had an incredible few weeks and we can't wait to get back over and play for you guys again soon. Here's a picture from our gig at the Partheater Göggingen, Augsburg.
Well, that's Glasgow's Celtic Connections festival over for another year but we're left with some really magical musical memories from a fantastic festival and, of course, that special night at a sold-out Barrowland Ballroom. Here's to next year's festival and all the music and fun to come between now and then!
In the build up to the launch of our new album on January 20th, here's a taste of what's to come with our title track, An Dà Là. Tha sinn an dòchas gun cord e riut! Enjoy!
We are delighted to announce that our brand new album 'An Dà Là - The Two Days' will be released on the 20th of January 2017!
It's been quite the journey forging this record, but we hope most of you will agree it's been well worth the wait when you finally get to hear it!
