*Throughout 2016 Càirdeas will once again be entertaining international audiences onboard The 5 Star “Royal Scotsman Train” and the luxury cruise ship, “Hebridean Princess”. This will be our eighth year working on the train and our second year on the ship. We are delighted to be working with two of Scotland’s most prestigious brands and we look forward to the season ahead! 

Càirdeas is regarded as one of Scotland’s top folk music trios. Their lively Scottish and Irish music mixes strong vocals with guitar, fiddle, mandolin, bouzouki, bagpipes and whistles to create an acoustic tour de force. From traditional and contemporary songs to haunting melodies and electrifying high speed reels, their music revolves around powerful vocals, traditional melodies and driving rhythmic accompaniment. Since their formation, Càirdeas have enjoyed much success both at home and abroad. Originally formed for a tour of Switzerland in 2006, they now play at Scottish and Irish events all over the world.

“Scotland’s top folk music trio. It’s as simple as that”
