THE Tannahill Weavers will be appearing at St Andrew’s Church in Wiveliscombe later this month as part of the Silver Street Sessions.

The group is one of Scotland’s premier traditional bands and its diverse repertoire spans the centuries with fire-driven instrumentals, topical songs, and original ballads and lullabies.

The band’s music demonstrates to old and young alike the rich 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 cannot get better - yet continue to do just that.

The Tannahill Weavers will be at St Andrew’s Church in Wiveliscombe on Thursday, October 28, with doors open from 7.30pm in readiness for the concert starting at 8pm.

Tickets are available from Wiveliscombe Post Office, telephone 01984-623308, email [email protected] or visit .

The talented musicians 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.

Over the years the Tannies – as they have been called - have been international trailblazers for Scottish music, and their tight harmonies and powerful, inventive arrangements have won them fans from beyond the folk and Celtic music scenes.

In 2011 the band was inducted into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame and in 2018 it released its highly acclaimed 50th anniversary album Òrach – which is Golden in Gaelic - on award-winning label Compass Records.

In 2019 the band was nominated for Folk Album of the Year and Folk Band of the Year in Scotland, and as the Tannies tour their 52nd year, they are firmly established as one of the premier groups on the concert stage.

From reflective ballads to foot-stomping reels and jigs, the variety and range of the material the musicians perform is matched only by their enthusiasm and lively Celtic spirits.
