Scotland’s Tannahill Weavers return to Sebastopol! Join them as they perform their favorite tunes and songs with bagpipes, fiddle, flute, harmony vocals, and plenty of laughs. For 2019 we’ve got the inimitable Mike Katz on bagpipes – don’t miss it, and remember Celtic Music + Humor = Fun!
The Tannahill Weavers are 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. Born of a session in Paisley and named for the town’s historic weaving industry and local poet laureate Robert Tannahill, the group has made an international name for its special brand of Celtic music, blending the beauty of traditional melodies with the power of modern rhythms.
As they release their 18th recording, Òrach (“Golden” in Gaelic) to celebrate their 50th anniversary, they are firmly established as one of the premier groups on the concert stage. 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.
