Capercaillie celebrates their 30th Anniversary year with a new album, a UK tour and festival appearances throughout Europe.  

From their homeland roots of Argyll, Capercaillie have been credited with being the major force in bringing traditional Celtic music to the world stage. Since the band’s first innovative recordings of 1984, they have toured in 30 countries across the globe, released 10 award-winning albums and had the first ever Gaelic top 40 single.

Capercaillie includes some of the finest musicians on the scene:  Manus Lunny, Charlie McKerron, Donald Shaw, Ewen Vernal, Michael McGoldrick, David Robertson, Che Beresford, and the exquisite voice of Karen Matheson.

Their innovative approach to traditional sources and influences and the excitement they create through live performance explains the widespread esteem in which they are held in the current explosive folk scene.
