A SCOTTISH band, with a strong bagpiping influence, will be the headline act at Northwich Folk Club this week.
Glasgow-based Barluath will be supported by Chris Algar at the event on Friday, April 25, doors opening at 8pm.
The five-piece, who met whilst studying at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, embrace both the traditional and contemporary music of Scotland, Ireland and America.
The band will play fiddles, whistles, guitar, highland and border bagpipes, bouzouki and piano/keyboards.
The gig will take place at the Gladstone Club on Station Road, due to the power outage at the Harlequin Theatre caused by the large fire at a nearby industrial unit in March.
Pete Thompson, who will be host for the evening, said: “They have been growing in presence in Scotland and they actually rang me to see if they could arrange to come and play down here.
“That was quite a surprise, which was good. They are a bit different to the acts that we normally have and there is a lot more emphasis on pipes and we are hoping we can latch on to a different audience as well.
“They are a pretty talented band.
“It’s also an unusual one for us as it will be held at the Gladstone Club due to the fire that has affected the power at the Harlequin.”
