The boys are no stranger to rubbing shoulders with movie royalty having wowed Chris Pine and co at the Outlaw King bash back in November and on Monday night they were honoured to have been asked back to Edinburgh Castle to perform for 1st Minister Nicola Sturgeon and some of the cast of new movie, Mary Queen of Scots which premiered at the Cameo this week.
Saoirse Ronan who plays the doomed Mary Stuart, was a real trouper, helping out on mini-maracas alongside Tu-Bardh, Nic and the rest of the gang. Interesting if you think about it, the story of an intelligent, principled Scots lass being persecuted by a London based ruler. Can’t think what modern scenario that reminds me of… Little bit of politics there. Anyway, enjoy the video.
For those of you modern types who don’t have a CD player or increasingly don’t even have a CD drive on your Mac or PC, we’ve delighted to announce that the 1st album is now available to download for a mere £10 via Bandcamp
We’re new to this service so if you use it and you see any issues then please get in touch.

Ballechin is the heavily peated distillation they have been making at Edradour Distillery since 2003. Distilled using barley which has been infused with peat to a level not less than 50ppm.
Clanadonia and Edradour Distillery have a lot in common, not least their commitment to honouring tradition. This first bottling in the Clanadonia Series celebrates Tu-Bardh.
Tu-Bardh Wilson, founder of the band, typifies the band’s earthy passion, respect for culture and tradition. These values and the band’s ancestral bloodlines are all bonded within their music, which has Scotland at its heart.
This high energy of tribal rhythms, bagpipes and tartan, is performed to all walks of life and cultures.
