The Tannahill Weavers - Pay What You Can £18.00 / £15.00 / £12.00

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

Born of a session in Paisley, Scotland, and named for the town's historic weaving industry and local poet laureate Robert Tannahill, the Tannahill Weavers have made an international name for their special brand of Celtic music, blending the beauty of traditional melodies with the power of modern rhythms. Their diverse repertoire spans the centuries with fire-driven instrumentals, topical songs, original ballads and lullabies, and humorous tales of life in Scotland.

From reflective ballads to footstomping 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. Celtic Connections 2018

Running time: 1hr 50m including a 20m interval
