8pm Thurs 23rd June

TREACHEROUS ORCHESTRA - £15

 

Another musical tour de force from Scotland - if you enjoy our show in May with the Peatbog Faeries, you may wish to come back for more from Treacherous Orchestra, the latest phenomenon in celtic dance music.

11 musicians from the younger generation of Scottish bands, Teacherous Orchestra are an exuberant, no holds barred onslaught of fiddles, pipes, flutes, banjos et al backed by a full electric band.

Definitely Scottish music for the 21st Century - to borrow a sporting phrase, Treacherous Orchestra are a band who don't bring anything back into the dressing room at the end - everything is given onstage, with nothing held back for tomorrow.

This is primarily a standing show, although seating will be available at the sides / in the balcony for those who prefer it
