Winner of the 2012 MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards Scottish Folk Band Of The Year.

Calum MacCrimmon (bagpipes, whistles, vocals), Donal Brown (bagpipes, flute, whistles, stepdance), Patsy Reid (viola, fiddle, cello), Ewan Robertson (guitar, vocals). Since 2003, Breabach's innovative Celtic style has won acclaim with audiences internationally. The band are largely defined by a contemporary pipe and dance-driven sound, commended not just for their strathspeys and reels but also for their sympathetic treatment of traditional songs and slower melodies.

Having won the Danny Kyle Open Stage award in 2005 (and nominated for Best Up And Coming Artist at the Scots Trad Music Awards 2006), the band have since performed at festivals in Canada, Spain and Germany as well as many venues throughout Scotland.

The band's piper - Calum MacCrimmon - was a finalist in the BBC Young Traditional Musician Of The Year contest.

Breabach performed at the opening concert of the 2006 Blas Festival in The City Halls, Glasgow. Playing back to back with Blazin' Fiddles and Capercaillie, the show was broadcast live on BBC Radio Scotland's Travelling Folk.

The band also appeared at the 2007 Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow, as part of the Showcase Scotland weekend.
