The Chair on-stage is an experience that will have even the most reserved audience beating a path to the dance floor. Melodies from their native Orkney are mashed up with blues, dub and klezmer in an 8-piece riot of fiddles, banjos, accordions and drums. Collectively, the sound approaches the energy levels of a rock gig, yet remains acoustic at heart.
The Chair, a must-see festival band, were voted Band of the Year at the 2008 Scots Trad Music Awards.
“… carnivorous energy allied to an endearing sense of merriment … this is a compelling and triumphant release which places The Chair firmly at the vanguard of where-it’s-at.” – The Living Tradition
