The Haggis Horns

The Haggis Horns combine heavy breakbeat funk, hip-hop, soul and afrobeat with jazz to stunning effect. They’ve been at the forefront of the UK funk scene since they came to our attention on the legendary album “Keb Darge Presents The New Mastersounds”. They have two funk-fuelled albums under their belt, ‘Hot Damn!’ & ‘Keep On Movin’ ‘ (First Word Records) and they have been rocking crowds the world over for years winning fans with their distinctive northern funk sound combining ass-shaking breakbeats, afrobeat, soul and hip-hop.  The members of The Haggis Horns have performed with the likes of Jamiroquai, John Legend & The Roots, Amy Winehouse, Morcheeba, Roots Manuva, Lou Donaldson, Elbow, Nightmares On Wax, Dennis Coffey, Adele, Corinne Bailey Rae, Mark Ronson, Robbie Williams, Duran Duran, Craig Charles Presents The Fantasy Funk Band, The Cinematic Orchestra, Martina Topley-Bird, Kano, Estelle, Lily Allen, KT Tunstall & Snowboy, to name a few!

Now a 5-piece based around the nucleus of Atholl Ransome on saxes/flute/ perc/vocals and Malcolm Strachan on trumpet/flugelhorn/perc/vocals, they have enlisted the help of Dan Goldman (aka JD73) on keyboards and Moog bass to add a new depth to the sound of Luke Flowers on drums and Ben Barker on guitar/vocals, complementing the power and finesse of the horns. Guaranteed to get the dance floor jumping – this is a band at the top of their game and we promise you one of the best Funk & Soul club nights ever!

This event will begin at 9pm but our Picturehouse Cafe Bar is open earlier for delicious food and drinks.
