THE TANNAHILL WEAVERS

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.  As 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.

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

“An especially eloquent mixture of the old and the new.”
– New York Times

“Formed from a Paisley pub session in 1968, seminal trailblazers the Tannahill Weavers now also rank as national treasures.”

-Glasgow Celtic Connections 2018
