Traditional and contemporary folk song from Scotland and beyond. 

Songs to get your toes tapping - Tarneybackle.

Our gigs calendar for 2018 is filling up.  We are excited to be performing at several folk clubs next year.  In addition, Lorna is getting our highland tours organised.  We have spaced them out for next year, so we shall be on tour in April, July and October.
 We are busy working on new material which we shall feature at all of our gigs. 
Our August tour was a great success with packed audiences at Pine Marten, Glenmore, The Applecross Inn, Portree Hotel and Tarskavaig Community Hall.  
We had a great night at The Wee Folk Club in Edinburgh as a warm up for Mugstock.
MUGSTOCK. What a fabulous, family friendly festival.  We were probably the folkiest act there and what a wonderful range of music was performed.  Keep an eye out for this festival in 2018 and get your tickets. 
Our June tour to Poolewe, Applecross, Portree and Torridon was a great success where we played to big audiences for each of the four gigs.  We had terrific support at Poolewe Village Hall.  Our thanks go to friends and fans who helped in many ways.
Following the tour we had a lively night at Stirling Folk Club.
The July tour was very busy.  We were delighted to perform our first gig at The Pine Marten Bar, Glenmore followed by Howard Doris, The Applecross Inn and Portree Hotel.  Lively nights and great to meet friends old and new.
