"Think: 'Fredericton's own Celtic supergroup.' By gathering up some of Atlantic Canada's finest players on one stage, Brollachan has established
itself as one of the most accomplished, traditional Celtic bands in the region today. It's obvious they keep the true Celtic musican lineage close to their hearts. An air of authenticity surrounds their performances, making their show a rich, musical experience for audiences." - David Seabrook - City of Fredericton Tourism

Bio

Brollachan blends world rhythms with Celtic melodies into their own unique sound. Strongly versed in traditional Celtic music, Brollachan doesn't shy away from accepting influence wherever it may come from. Hints of Latin, French-Canadian, and Bulgarian rhythms can be heard amongst traditional Irish, Scottish, and Cape Breton melodies.

When European immigrants began to populate Canada's Maritime lands, they brought with them, strong traditions of country and culture. As this new land became their own, the melding of cultures formed new and exciting traditions for future generations to develop.

Brollachan is a band formed from this cross-cultural pollination. Cape Breton fiddling and Irish bouzouki mixed with strong piano and accordion accompaniment, all held together by a collective sense of rhythm and drive. The result is truly addictive.

While much of the band's early repertoire drew largely from traditional standards, original compositions have slowly begun to make their way into sets. One by one, the tunes played have come to represent not only the group's cultural influence but its unique identity as ambassadors of Canada's cultural mosaic.
