Scottish folk band featuring songs, guitar, fiddle, whistles, mandolin, highland bagpipes and Scottish smallpipes.


Càirdeas are regarded as one of Scotland's top folk music trios. Their lively Scottish and Irish music mixes strong vocals with guitar, fiddle, mandolin, bouzouki, bagpipes and whistles to create an acoustic tour de force. From traditional and contemporary songs to haunting melodies and electrifying high speed reels, their music revolves around powerful vocals, traditional melodies and driving rhythmic accompaniment. Since their formation, Càirdeas have enjoyed much success both at home and abroad. Originally formed for a tour of Switzerland in 2006, they now play at Scottish and Irish events all over the world. "Scotland's top folk music trio. It's as simple as that."
