Breabach began 2017 in exciting fashion as winners of the Scots Trad Music Awards Folk Band of the Year for the second time and Album of the Year for their fifth studio album ‘Astar’. A special Celtic Connections show to celebrate the album was held in February in Glasgow’s City Hall and was received with a sell-out crowd and 5 star review in The Scotsman.
The momentum continued with nominations for Best Band at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and for European Album of the Year in the Songlines Music Awards. This was underpinned by a packed live performance schedule including tours of the UK, Sweden and Canada and an exciting, energetic festival season across Europe.
Delivering an increasingly mature repertoire and live performance whilst continuing to build their reputation at the forefront of the UK’s world and roots music scene, this is a band at the very top of their game and not to be missed.
