Tannahill Weavers // Old Blind Dogs

Scotland's Tannahill Weavers recently celebrated their 50th year on the road, and they're not slowing down! Named for Scottish poet Robert Tannahill, the Tannahill Weavers create music that is steeped in history yet brings the Scottish musical tradition forward into the present day. With innovative arrangements blending the beauty of traditional melodies with the power of modern rhythms, the group embraces the rollicking, even brawling qualities of Lowland Anglo-Scots tunes but never loses sight of the almost mystical Highland Celtic core. "The penetrating sound of the Highland bagpipes is a thread of ancient memory running through it all," they say. The band's diverse repertoire spans the centuries with fiery instrumentals, topical songs, and original ballads. They're an Ark favorite, but tonight you have the chance to see them with an act that's a good deal rarer stateside—The Old Blind Dogs. Since forming in Scotland in 1992, The Dogs have stood on the cutting edge of the Scots root
