Description

Frenzy of the Meeting is the latest release from multi award-winning Scottish folk band Breabach. Continuing to build on the ideas and experimentation from their 2016 album Astar, this new work is exploratory and creative. The new release also sees the band take exciting steps towards developing a more expansive sonic landscape.  

Tracked live by the band over a week in June 2018, their aim was to capture the raw essence of the live energy and musical dynamic they have become so well-known for. More studio time followed with a focus on experimentation and sonic production, with the final result being their most adventurous album to date. Produced in collaboration with Eamon Doorley (Julie Fowlis, Danu) and engineered by Iain Hutchison, Frenzy of the Meeting also features stunning original artwork by Somhairle Macdonald.

Alongside traditional songs and contemporary tunes there are original compositions from each band member with the material largely themed on todays frenzied experience of global politics, media and the natural world as well as focusing on the positive fevered hive of innovation, creativity and pioneering music within the Glasgow music scene, to where the band belong.

The theme is further reflected in the hectic 2 years of global touring post release of Astar. In that time the band have picked up 'Best Folk Band' and 'Best Album' at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards as well as nominations for 'Best Group' at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and 'European Album of the Year' in the Songlines Music Awards. 

As with Breabach's first two albums, the title is taken from an ancient Piobaireachd that features on the album. Acknowledging and respecting the origins of both the music they play and the roots of the band whilst embracing the future with new ideas, energy and belief is a key attribute of the band and another theme that is strongly conveyed through this new release.
