BrÒg at Edinburgh FC / EFC (moved from Jan 12 2022)
BrÒg features legendary piper Gary West on pipes, whistles, vocals and guitar; virtuoso fiddler Greg Borland on fiddle and bass, and the sensational Sandy Brechin on accordion. Gary West currently plays with the famous Atholl Highlanders, is presenter of BBC Radio Scotlands Pipeline, ex Ceolbeg, Caledon and Clan Alba. Greg Borland plays with Other Roads, Burach, ex Caledon and the Kathryn Tickell Band. Sandy Brechin plays with The Jimi Shandrix Experience, The Sandy Brechin Band, Burach, ex-Seelyhoo and a host of other bands.

Greg Borland can trace his Scottish Fiddling heritage back 200 years. Gregor grew up near Inverness in the Scottish highlands and started fiddle lessons with Donald Riddell at the age of 9. After several years and many successes in fiddle competitions all over Scotland, he continued his studies with Hector MacAndrew an acclaimed fiddler in the north-eastern tradition. Both his teachers inspired and influenced his great love of highland pipe marches and stirring strathspeys. Greg has taught at workshops in this country and abroad for many years and is passionate about passing on his musical heritage to the next generation of fiddle players. Greg is also equally at home on bass guitar or mandolin.

Gary West from Pitlochry, in Perthshire learned his piping with the much acclaimed Vale of Atholl Pipe Band with whom he played for 18 years winning both the Scottish and European Championships. In the late 1980s, he began to play a prominent role in the folk music scene, joining Ceolbeg in 1988, and becoming a founder member of the Scottish supergroup Clan Alba in 1991, playing alongside such luminaries as Dick Gaughan and Brian McNeil. Gary is a full time lecturer in the Department of Celtic and Scottish Studies at the University of Edinburgh.

Sandy Brechin is one of Scotlands best known accordionists, famous for his lightning-fast playing and hilarious on-stage humour. He has developed his own unique approach to the art of accordion playing and his innovative style is instantly recognisable; a combination of slick, incredibly fast finger-work on the melody and a revolutionary method of syncopation on the bass. Sandy has been touring all over the world for many years and he has been recorded on over a hundred albums on various labels. Sandy is a respected teacher of accordion, having held the position of accordion tutor at The National Centre for Excellence in Traditional Music in Plockton for many years.
