Behind the Music

Audiences have been enthralled at the unique and exciting blend of traditional and rock music with Bagpipes to the fore. You need to experience a Scottish lament on the pipes leading into an energetic rock classic or a punked up version of a trad classic.

Influences include the Red Hot Chilli Pipers and the Drop Kick Murphys.

Tartan Riot can also offer a full music and dance show with the dancers of Keltic Flair joining us on stage for traditional Irish, Scottish and contemporary dance routines.
