Australia's unique Celtic Rock Band HIGHLANDER will perform again at the Annual Scottish Highland Gathering - Brigadoon in 2011.
The powerful sound of the bagpipes, matched with dynamic sound of the fiddle, and electric and acoustic guitars, compliment the powerhouse bass grooves, pulsating percussion, and vocal harmonies.
Highlander, while keeping traditional music in its repertoire, has also added its own flavour to the reels, jigs, and songs of Scotland. However, they are most outstanding when they perform their original compositions which are rich in melody and message.
If the sound of Highland bagpipes stirs the blood and makes the hair on the back of your neck stand on end - then “Highlander” is a show not to be missed.
“Highlander’s” line up combines a unique blend of pipes, whistle, fiddle, guitars, drums and vocals together with a dynamic stage presence producing an unforgettable and exciting live performance which is enjoyed and respected by audiences of all ages.
“Highlander” released their album “North of the Wall” in 2010 which saw the album feature as album of the week on Glasgow’s Celtic Music Radio Scotland. It’s a testimony to the bands commitment to explore and produce rich and vibrant music. The diverse album is an arrangement of well know jigs and reels blended with original works.
Since the album release the band has been booked for some of the top Scottish and Celtic events in Australia including the ‘Australian Celtic Festival' in Glen Innes, the ‘Bundanoon Highland Gathering’ in the Southern Highlands, 'The National Celtic Festival' in Portarlington, 'The Beechworth Celtic Festival', the 'Echuca Moama Celtic Festival' and many other events.
With the band's popularity fast increasing, as well as an increasing world-wide fan base thanks to internet radio, they have become a sought-after act for major Celtic and Scottish events in Australia.
It’s impossible not to be caught up in the energy ‘Highlander’ brings to every show. They are an act guaranteed to have audiences tapping their feet from start to finish.
