Festival favourites Treacherous Orchestra are back to set the heathers alight. Expect a furious fusion of Scottish traditional music with rock, punk and more. Founded by pipers Ali Hutton and Ross Ainslie, the supergroup blends artists and influences from across the nation and beyond. Having first performed together at Celtic Connections 2009, the ensemble has gone on to take Scottish dance music into a new dimension. Merging traditional bagpipes, accordion, bodhran, fiddle and tin whistle with guitars, bass and drums, Treacherous Orchestra creates a joyous explosion of instrumental acumen, rampaging humour and brilliant tunes.
Their first hometown gig in several years promises a euphoric reunion for band and fans alike. Complete with full 11-piece line-up – with bagpipes, fiddles, whistles, accordion, banjo, guitars, bass and percussion – a set-list of classic material, and all the trademark Treacherous pyrotechnics.
