“…An especially eloquent mixture of the old and the new.” 

-THE NEW YORK TIMES

One of the world’s premier traditional Celtic bands, their diverse repertoire spans the centuries with fire-driven instrumentals, topical songs, original ballads and lullabies, and humorous tales of life in Scotland.

The Tannahill Weavers return to the Ashe Civic Center on Tuesday, April 16th. They are one of Scotland’s premier traditional bands. Their diverse repertoire spans the centuries with fire-driven instrumentals, topical songs, and original ballads and lullabies. They have that unique combination of traditional melodies, driving rhythmic accompaniment, and rich vocals that make their performances unforgettable.

In 2018 they released their 18th recording, Òrach (“Golden” in Gaelic) to celebrate their 50th anniversary, and in 2019 they were nominated for Folk Band of the Year and Album of the Year in Scotland. In 2021 they have been joined by exciting piper and fiddle player Iain MacGillivray, who is also Scotland’s youngest Clan leader. Iain, a fluent Gaelic speaker, has worked on such exciting productions as Outlander and Men in Kilts, and has performed for a huge list of stars and dignitaries in recent years.

As they head back out on the road they are firmly established as one of the premier groups on the concert stage – from reflective ballads to foot-stomping reels and jigs; the variety and range of the material they perform is matched only by their enthusiasm and lively Celtic spirits. Tickets are $25 for adults and $7.50 for students.
