Imagine, if you will, Celtic music, sunglasses and ober-coolness in a kilt covering the whole stage. You have just imagined: Tartanic!
I love the bagpipes! These guys take bagpipping to a whole new level. They mix the sound of the bagpipe into harmonies that will bring the most resolute Highlander to tears. Or convert the un-Scottish to a kilt-wearing-mad-person. Take the sounds off the two highland bagpipes and add to it three percussionists playing a variety of instruments and you have a band that will take Celtic music to the extreme. Their sound is all their own and you have to love the stage presence. Seldom do you get to see a band take the audience on a musical journey. And of course, if you see them at a Ren Fair you will get to see the crowd, dressed in their period finest, dancing to the beat.
