|BACK OF THE MOON
the Moon are one of the most exciting young bands to emerge
in the Scottish trad music scene in the last five years.'Best
Up and Coming Act' at the Scots Trad Music Awards 2003 and
'Best Celtic Group' at Lorient Inter-Celtic Festival 2003.
Since forming in 2000, the band has rapidly gained a reputation
for their dynamic live performances at home and abroad.
The tightly woven pipes and fiddle, the intimate pairing
of whistle and flute, the distinctive rhythmic force of
the guitar/piano combo, the awesome three-part vocal harmonies
in their Scottish songs - in which each unique singer takes
turn at the lead - all contribute to Back of the Moon's
giant acoustic sound.
"...thoughtfully passed repertoire, with tune sets
both power-packed and reflective...recent recruit Ali Hutton's
whistle, pipes and bodhran have brought a real fillip and
the quartet have the look and confidence of a band on the
way up." The Herald, Back of the Moon at The Arches,
Celtic Connections 2005
