Tannahill Weavers

The Tannahill Weavers: Iain MacGillivray, Malcolm Bushby, Phil Smillie and Roy Gullane

One of Scotland’s premier trad bands! Their fiery instrumentals, rich vocals, tight harmonies and powerful, inventive arrangements have won them fans from beyond the folk and Celtic music scenes.

“The music may be pure old time Celtic, but the drive and enthusiasm are akin to straight ahead rock and roll.” —Winnipeg Free Press

Their diverse repertoire spans the centuries, 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.

“Formed from a Paisley pub session in 1968, seminal trailblazers the Tannahill Weavers now also rank as national treasures.” —Glasgow Celtic Connections 2018

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 close to perfect as it gets in an imperfect world.” —Sing Out!
