Bio

Hailing from the Celtic rural heartland of Southern Victoria, Dalriada have incorporated this rich culture into their music, combining it with the music they grew up with - good catchy pop tunes. It is a melding of the ancient with the contemporary - a combination of traditional rock instruments (electric guitars and drums) with the haunting, captivating sounds of the bagpipes, Celtic bouzouki, flute, tin whistles, bodhran and congas all played with a primitive, primal passion. Catherine Ogilvy tops off this heady blend with vocals that can rock the cradle one minute and rock the boat the next. The band have been a major drawcard at most of Australia's major festivals such as Woodford Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival, Dalriada are creating the global sound of the future, with a glance to the past - forging new and enduring traditions.
