Enter The Haggis
Enter The Haggis
Over the past three albums and five years, Toronto’s Celtic rock band Enter The Haggis has found itself at the center of a grassroots success story ever teetering on the brink of mainstream success. A workhorse group that performs nearly 150 dates out of the year, the band has amassed an ever-growing, devoted tour following from its humble Toronto roots, leaving not only fans, but die hard “Haggis Heads” in its wake nationwide. Constantly honing and evolving their sound – blending elements of rock and pop with traditional Celtic fare, an art school eclecticism and a keen sense of arrangement, in March 2009 ETH released "Gutter Anthems," their most cohesive record to date, yet one that makes the band’s trademark eclecticism shine. From Celtic festivals to headlining rock venues and from Billboard World Music charting to major television appearances on shows like "Live With Regis And Kelly," ETH has made its success one fan, one town, one region at a time.
Scythian
Scythian
Scythian (sith-ee-yin) belts out a high-energy, adrenaline-peddling, interactive brand of music with one goal in mind; to get people on their feet and dancing. These classically trained musicians are natural showmen who seamlessly blend kicked-up Celtic, folk and world music, and deliver it with a punk-rock sensibility. Combine this with the driving rhythm of a jazz percussionist, and you've got the ingredients for a show you won't soon forget. In a single song, they transport an audience across the globe with the alluring and dramatic strains of gypsy fiddles, the bounce of a Celtic reel, and then cross back over the border to pick up a klezmer hook and some good old-fashioned bluegrass licks.
