Folk Bands & Other Musicians
Another musical element that has been important within concert performances and overseas work is the Folk Group sound. This provides an alternative to traditional Highland piping and dancing. The sound is often more relaxed and mellow, using a combination of folk instruments, including small-pipes, fiddles, accordions, whistles and bodhrans.
Piping Services Scotland has arranged folk group bookings for external functions, as well as recommending other performers for both traditional and modern arrangements of music.
Piping Services Scotland has connections to many different musicians and forms of music, including pianists, harpists, clarsach players (Gaelic Harp), guitarists, singers and modern bands.
