We are a Scottish Dance band, consisting of fiddlers, piano/keyboard, small and highland bagpipes and a Scottish country and ceilidh dance caller.
We first officially played as Wild Thistle for the Scotia Valentine's Day Party, February 14, 2011, although we have been playing as different subgroups of musicians for many years.
The pipes add a special Scottish flavor to our traditional sound. Keyboard adds a strong rhythm and harmonies, and the fiddles provide the dynamic lively and energetic dance quality our music. You can't help but start dancing. We work with a number of traditional dance callers, including Jack Cole and Fergie Ferguson. We love the Scottish and Irish Country, Ceilidh, and Cape Breton traditional music and dance.
For celebrations, there's nothing better than singing traditional Scottish songs with pipe, fiddle, and keyboard backup.
Come see us at CLANN AN UABHAIR's 18th Annual Burns Night Supper, Saturday, February 26, 2011.
