Ceòl an Aire
Ceòl an Aire are a traditional Scottish/folk band based in Oban on the West Coast of Scotland.
Since forming in 2010, the band have been fortunate enough to perform on Scottish festival stages including Oban Live, Tiree Music Festival, Carradale Music Festival and Gig in the Goil in recent years.
2013 saw the release of the band’s debut EP “It’ll be Fine” which included a popular cover of Richard Thompson’s Beeswing amongst other traditional medleys and songs.
In July 2019 the band release “Revive” a new single for digital download which features a set of tunes composed by accordionist Ruairidh Morrison from Kilmore.
“Revive,” as the name suggests, is set to bring to you a brand new dynamic from the band. In addition to the new, self-penned material, they have forged together their Argyllshire roots with powerful basslines, double the drones and a rowdy rhythm section all contributing to a distinctive, modern sound.
This is an exciting new chapter for Ceòl an Aire who are now back in the studio working on a four track EP of original material which is due to be available for pre-order in December 2019.
