"still the original and best." The Scotsman

Groundbreaking Scottish mavericks Shooglenifty push the word 'traditional' to its limits with their unique blend of dance vibes and roots music. Genuinely genre defying, they have been described as everything from "acid croft" to "hypnofolkadelia." Journalists may compete for words to describe, but all agree they are virtually impossible not to dance to and one of the best live bands of their genre around.

Previous career highlights include performing for Nelson Mandela and Emperor Akihito of Japan (not both at once), and playing in Cuba a full year before the Manic Street Preachers' much-vaunted Louder than War gig in 2001. Back in 1996, meanwhile, Shooglenifty became the first band ever to incite a stage invasion at Sydney Opera House.

Their latest album, Murmichan, follows hot on the heels of 'Troots' which was described by The Guardian as "predictably classy" displaying their trademark scope, scale and wildness with fiddle and mandolin playing off each other across a bewildering array of grooves.
