Tannahill Weavers

St Mark Presbyterian Church
10701 Old Georgetown Rd., Rockville, MD

For twenty five years the Tannahill Weavers' diverse repertoire has reflected the duality of Scotland’s musical heritage. It embraces both the mystical quality of the Highlander’s Celtic music, and the rollicking, sometimes even brawling qualities of the Lowlander’s Anglo-Scots tunes. The Tannahill Weavers’ arrangements blend the beauty of traditional melodies with the power of modern rhythms, while the penetrating sound of the Highland bagpipes is a thread of ancient memory running through it all. Roy Gullane (guitar, lead vocals) and Phil Smillie (flute, bodhrán, whistles, harmony vocals) are the two longest serving professional members of the Tannahills. They’re joined by Les Wilson on guitar, bouzouki, keyboards, bass pedals, lead and harmony vocals, and John Martin on fiddle, cello, viola and bass vocals. Colin Melville is the Tannies’ latest piper, who contributes Highland bagpipes, Scottish small pipes and whistles. One of the longest standing and most prolific Celtic renaissance bands, the Tannies have proved themselves among the greats of our time with consistent high quality of performance and recording.
