Tannahill Weavers
 Tannahill Weavers are one of Scotland's premier traditional bands. The band, who were inducted into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame in 2011, performs a diverse repertoire of instrumentals, topical songs, and original ballads and lullabies that spans the centuries, and that demonstrates to old and young alike the rich and varied musical heritage of the Celtic people. These versatile musicians have received worldwide accolades consistently over the years for their exuberant performances and outstanding albums that seemingly can't get better...yet continue to do just that. As the Winnipeg Free Press noted, "The Tannahill Weavers - properly harnessed - could probably power an entire city for a year on the strength of last night's concert alone. The music may be old time Celtic, but the drive and enthusiasm are akin to straight ahead rock and roll." And it is all done with traditional material that they have transformed and brought into the modern world, vitally alive and kicking.

The Tannahill Weavers were the first professional Scottish folk group to successfully add highland pipes to their performances, and the combination of the powerful pipe solos, Roy's driving guitar and lead vocals, and Phil's lively flute playing breathed new life into Scotland's vast repertoire of traditional melodies and songs. Three years and a dozen countries later, the Tannahills were the toast of Europe, having won the Scotstar Award for Folk Record of the Year with their third album, The Tannahill Weavers. And after their first visit to the United States in 1981, the Tannahills' unique combination of traditional melodies on pipes, flute and fiddle, driving rhythms on guitar and bouzouki, and powerful three and four part vocal harmonies took the musical community by storm. As Garrison Keillor, the host of "Prairie Home Companion", remarked, "These guys are a bunch of heroes every time they go on tour in the States".

Over the years the Tannies have been trailblazers for Scottish music, and their tight harmonies and powerful, inventive arrangements have won them fans from beyond the folk and Celtic music scenes. In 2014 they were joined by innovative piper Lorne MacDougall, whose pedigree includes having arranged and performed pipes for the Disney Pixar movie Brave, along with a long list of other accomplishments. They are firmly established as one of the premier groups on the concert stage, and from their reflective ballads to footstomping reels and jigs, the variety and range of the material they perform is matched only by their liveliness and enthusiastic Celtic spirit!
