Albannach, Scottish Gaelic for "Scottish," is a Scottish cultural band formed in 2005 in Glasgow, Scotland. Their traditional music is heavily percussive, driven by bass drums, bodhráns, and a single bagpipe. Albannach released their first album, the eponymous Albannach, in 2006. Since, the band has independently released four additional studio albums and frequently performs music at Highland games, Scottish festivals, and Celtic cultural events across North America and the United Kingdom. With little exception, Albannach's discography is instrumental, though several vocal songs are included in live shows.

  • Albannach, Scottish Gaelic for "Scottish," is a Scottish cultural band formed in 2005 in Glasgow, Scotland. Their traditional music is heavily percussive, driven by bass drums, bodhráns, and a single bagpipe. Albannach released their first album, the eponymous Albannach, in 2006. Since, the band has independently released four additional studio albums and frequently performs music at Highland games, Scottish festivals, and Celtic cultural events across North America and the United Kingdom. With little exception, Albannach's discography is instrumental, though several vocal songs are included in live shows. The band championed the cause of Scottish independence during the 2014 independence referendum, releasing an EP titled Independence to support the "yes" vote. Some songs, such as A'Maighdeann Bharrach (The Maiden of Barra), are sung in Scottish Gaelic. The band's connection to historical authenticity has led to them being used as extras in Discovery Channel documentary retelling of ancient history. After a 2011 show at the Glasgow Highland Games in Glasgow, Kentucky, band member Jamesie Johnston was stabbed in the midsection and leg by a drunk and belligerent fan, leading to his hospitalization. Johnston made a full recovery, and the person in question was charged with first-degree assault. (en)
