WORLD-RENOWNED folk band Breabach will be appearing live in the Lake District this July.

The Scottish act, winners of two Scots Trad Awards in 2017 for Folk Band of the Year and Album of the Year, appear live at the Theatre by the Lake, in Keswick, on Sunday 15.

A band whose remarkable reputation precedes them, Breabach are best-known for featuring the Highland bagpipes along with fiddle, guitar, whistles and double bass.

This folk group have subtly infused the global sounds of their travels whilst on tour into their contemporary folk repertoire, with their latest album featuring elements of Aboriginal singing, the Maori Haka and Norwegian and Quebecois fiddle.

Accompanied by hauntingly beautiful Gaelic vocals and throwing in step dance too, this is a band at the very top of their game.

The literal translation of ‘kicking’ in Gaelic, Breabach up the tempo and heartbeats of sell-out crowds at every performance, not just at home in Glasgow but across the world during their exhilarating and energetic sets.

Breabach is the best that Scotland has to offer in terms of traditional music, but also young talent - cleverly fusing heritage with innovation.

Founding guitarist and vocalist Ewan Robertson, is joined by Calum MacCrimmon and James Mackenzie on various pipes, whistles, bouzouki and vocals, Megan Henderson on fiddle and vocals, and double bass player James Lindsay.

Previous nominees for the top prize at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in recent years, the five-piece band have been playing across the world, undertaking tours of the UK, Sweden and Canada and an exciting, energetic festival season across Europe in support of their last album.

This year will see Breabach back in the studio to record a sixth studio album as well continuing their adventures across the globe with tours of the UK and Australia to kick things off.

Breabach appear at the Theatre by the Lake on Sunday July 15, from 7.30pm, and tickets are available from the venue's box office.
