"The most vibrant and exciting band in the field of Celtic music" (Billboard)
Scots folk band Capercaillie will perform as their original acoustic nucleus quartet of Karen Matheson (vocals), Charlie McKerrron (fiddle), Manus Lunny (Bouzouki) and Donald Shaw (Accordion) in a special stripped back quartet format for the inaugural Scottish Towns and Grand Houses Tour, a new national tour at select National Trust properties to celebrate the Year of Scotland in Australia, 2020.
The band have performed across Australia a number of times on headline theatre tours and festival appearances in the last 20 years are delighted to return with their unique take on traditional music and Gaelic songs.
The Tour is a magnificent opportunity to celebrate the very best in Scottish Gaelic music in historic settings that are beautiful, quirky or opulent by turn.
