Joining Altan and The High Kings at the Festival this autumn, we are delighted to bring you yet a third outstanding band, The Outside Track. Winner of Best Group in both the Live Ireland and Tradition in Review (TIR) awards, and finalist for best album in the 2016 Indie Acoustic Project Awards, The Outside Track are one of the top, young, pan-Celtic acts on the world scene today. Displaying a stunning synthesis of virtuosity and energy, their signature blend of Celtic music, song, and dance has been rapturously received wherever they have performed.
Hailing from Scotland, Ireland, Canada, and the US, the band’s five members effortlessly fuse traditional with contemporary, and with winning joie de vivre, create a heady mix on fiddle, accordion, harp, guitar, and whistle. Add to that incomparable step-dancing and breathtaking vocals and you have The Outside Track in brilliant, vibrant color. Wow.
