Ceòl an Aire are a 5 piece trad (traditional Scottish / folk) band based in Oban on the West Coast of Scotland.
Since forming in 2010, the band have been fortunate enough to perform on Scottish festival stages including Oban Live, Tiree Music Festival, Carradale Music Festival and Gig in the Goil in recent years.
2013 saw the release of the band's debut EP "It'll be Fine" which included a popular cover of Richard Thompson's Beeswing amongst other traditional medleys and songs.
In July 2019 the band released "Revive" a new single for digital download which features a set of tunes composed by accordionist Ruairidh Morrison from Kilmore.
“Revive,” as the name suggests, brought a brand new dynamic from the band. In addition to the new, self-penned material, they have forged together their Argyllshire roots with powerful basslines, double the drones and a rowdy rhythm section all contributing to a distinctive, modern sound.
In March 2020 the band released their second EP, Doubles, with a live stream launch event. Doubles features the band’s first self-penned song, “Sail Away” along with a number of original tune sets and the band’s arrangement of the popular traditional Gaelic song, An Eala Bhàn.
In 2023 Ceòl an Aire are looking forward to performing on some fantastic stages and recording more new material that we're excited to share with you soon!
