Breabach Live in Italia!

Una delle band più celebri della musica popolare scozzese degli ultimi tempi, i Breabach tengono il palco con energia e carisma, grazie alla line-up comprendente doppia cornamusa, flauto e violino, ulteriormente alimentata dai ritmi sincopati di contrabbasso e chitarra. Il loro repertorio fonde senza sforzo stili tradizionali e contemporanei, sottolineando il loro impegno e la passione per il loro patrimonio musicale, ma mostra anche una volontà di esplorare e sfidare i confini della proposta meramente basata sulla tradizione. Non desta sorpresa dunque l'inclusione, nel corso di questo 2011, del gruppo nelle liste dei nominati a premi ambiti come i BBC Radio2 Folk awards, come miglior band, e the Scots Trad Music Awards.
Le date del tour comprendono per l'Italia:
Agosto 2011
6th – Montelago Celtic Festival, Chiaravalle, Italy
7th – Campo Ligure, Italy
e inoltre l'imperdibile:
26th-28th – Shrewsbury Folk Festival, England

One of the most celebrated and successful Scottish folk bands of recent times, Breabach command the stage with flare, charisma and a sound that is as expansive as it is distinct. Powered by double bagpipes, flute and fiddle, this uncompromising force is further fueled by the tight groove of double bass, guitar and step-dance. Their enviable musicianship and adaptability is elegantly displayed through the thoughtful arrangement and delivery of songs. A repertoire that effortlessly fuses the traditional and contemporary underlines their commitment and passion for their musical heritage but also displays a willingness to explore and challenge boundaries.
Recent line up changes have given the band a new edge, energy and focus, and with increasing popularity and fast growing international recognition it is little wonder Breabach received nominations for ‘Best Group’ at both the 2011 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and the Scots Trad Music Awards simultaneously.
