CAMDEN — Camden Opera House, 29 Elm St., presents Scotland’s Tannahill Weavers 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12. This concert was rescheduled from March and therefore is limited capacity with some social distancing.

Born of a session in Paisley, Scotland, and named for the town’s historic weaving industry and local poet laureate Robert Tannahill, the Tannahill Weavers has made an international name for its special brand of Celtic music as members weave the beauty of traditional melodies and the power of modern rhythms. As one of the world’s premier traditional Celtic bands, the group’s diverse repertoire spans the centuries with fire-driven instrumentals, topical songs, original ballads and lullabies and humorous tales of life in Scotland.

“The music may be pure old-time Celtic, but the drive and enthusiasm are akin to straight-ahead rock ‘n’ roll,” says the Winnipeg Free Press.

The half-century-old band got an infusion of new spirit last year via piper and fiddle player Iain MacGillivray, Scotland’s youngest Clan leader. A fluent Gaelic speaker, MacGillivray has appeared in “Outlander” and “Men in Kilts”; played in The Uist Pipe Band and Royal Burgh of Tain Pipe Band; and is Musician in Residence at Glenmorangie Distillery. He also is founder and producer of Celtic EDM group IDMacG, forging a new genre of dance-pop sounds using Scottish music.

With original members Roy Gullane (guitar, lead vocals) and Phil Smillie (flute, whistles, bodhrán and harmony vocals); and Tasmanian-born Malcolm Bushby (fiddle, bouzouki and harmony vocals), MacGillivray is embedded in “An especially eloquent mixture of the old and the new,” as The New York Times calls Tannahill Weavers’ music. Superb musicianship and great humor will make for a most memorable evening of live performance.

Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 day-of-show. Choose-your-own reserved seats are available online at or by calling 236-3154. Show sponsor is 40 Paper. Up next are Oshima Brothers, Nov. 19; and Lúnasa, Dec. 10.
