Scottish contemporary-folk group Breabach walked away with 'Folk Band of the Year' and 'Album of Year' at the 2016 Scots Trad Music Awards. Not to mention, nominations for 'Best Group' at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and 'European Album of the Year' at the Songlines Music Awards in 2017. They are building their international recognition on the world and roots music scene as one of the UK's most dynamic and exciting bands. Their fifth studio album Astar (lit. distance/ journey) released in 2016, was produced by renowned musician Greg Lawson (Grit Orchestra, Moishes Bagel). The album is an exciting multicultural celebration, embracing the diverse influences the band have picked up over the years during their travels to far-flung corners of the globe, from Quebec to Norway, Australia to South Korea.

Breabach unites the talent of Calum MacCrimmon (pipes/whistles/bouzouki/vocals), Ewan Robertson (guitar/ vocals), James Mackenzie (pipes/flute/whistles), Megan Henderson (fiddle/vocals/stepdance) and James Lindsay (double bass). Since launching their career as winners of the Danny Kyle Open Stage at Celtic Connections in 2005, the band have steadily moved from strength to strength, picking up awards and performing at esteemed events along the way.
