The Tannahill Weavers are one of Scotland 's premier traditional bands.  Their diverse repertoire spans the centuries with fire-driven instrumentals, topical songs, and original ballads and lullabies.  Their music 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 recording efforts that seemingly can't get better...yet continue to do just that.  

The Tannahills have turned their acoustic excitement loose on audiences with an electrifying effect.  They have that unique combination of traditional melodies, driving rhythmic accompaniment, and rich vocals that make their performances unforgettable.  As the Winnipeg Free Press noted, "The Tannahill Weavers - properly harnessed - could probably power and 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."  

Born of a session in Paisley , Scotland 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 Scottish music, blending the beauty of traditional melodies with the power of modern rhythms.  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.  Inducted into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame in 2011, 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.

" Scotland 's Tannahill Weavers play acoustic instruments, but the atmosphere at their shows is electric.  The quintet is as tight and as versatile as any band in the Celtic music revival.  They can summon rock 'n' roll intensity or haunting introspection."  The Boston Globe, Boston MA
