2018 release. The Tannahill Weavers are widely considered Scotland's premier traditional band. Their diverse repertoire spans the centuries with fire-driven instrumentals, topical songs, and original ballads and lullabies. They have that unique combination of traditional melodies, driving rhythmic accompaniment, and rich vocals that make their performances unforgettable. Now in 2018, The Tannahill Weavers are celebrating their 50th anniversary with the release of their eighteenth album, rach ("golden" in Gaelic). With rach (The Golden Anniversary Album), the current line-up of Roy Gullane, Phil Smillie, John Martin and Lorne MacDougall, have brought together colleagues and members past and present to record an album of all new material - traditional and contemporary songs and sets of tunes in the Tannie's distinctive style. The CD booklet contains photos as well as a glossary to understand the traditional songs and extensive liner notes for each song detailing it's origin and performers.
