After an amazing Hogmanay Bash brining in 2015, Rhythmnreel will be back for another massive night to bring in 2016

Rhythmnreel have toured extensively throughout the Highlands and Islands, Scotland as a whole and also regularly in Europe.

Whilst the core of the sound is Pipe and Fiddle led Celtic Rock, the band will be keep the Hogmanay party going with plenty of Traditional Ceilidh Dances through to Classic sing-along Covers, and one or two of their own tunes for good measure.

With a backbone of Drums, Bass, Lead and Acoustic Guitars and Saxophone, the band are in the unique situation of having three fantastic fiddle players who share duties between them at the various gigs. Debbie Ross has played with the band for a number of years and is responsible for putting together most of the celtic rock arrangements the band play and record. Paul Dzialdowski is a veteran and stalwart of the Feis movement and folk scene in the North of Scotland, and last but not least is Gillian Stevenson who has played in some of the country’s best ceilidh bands over the past 20 years.

The band also has access to a pool of outstanding Pipers.  Long standing Rhythmnreel Pipers Catriona and her sister Shona MacAffer have been supported by recent additions to the line up, Ali Levack and Conall Macillechiar.  Both are products of the Plockton Traditional Music School of Excellence and both play Highland and Border Pipes as well as Whistle.  Ali is currently studying Highland Music at the RSAMD in Glasgow.  All four feature in our new CD ‘Twenty’.
