Image Members of the folk band TRIP against a brick wall

TRIP are a Glasgow based six-piece band whose music unites the kindred Celtic traditions of Scotland, Ireland, Northumbria and the Isle of Man; a reflection of where each band member hails from.

Their powerful, driven and distinctive sound is underpinned by a versatile top-line featuring Accordion, Fiddle and Flute/Whistle and a dynamic rhythm section of Piano, Guitar and Bodhran. Their considered arrangements feature a blend of traditional melodies and self-penned tunes and songs, and celebrates the band’s roots in traditional music, whilst showcasing their contemporary, cross-genre influences.

The impressive line-up features Newcastle accordionist Michael Biggins (BBC Young Traditional Musician of the year 2021), Sligo flautist Tiernan Courell (All-Ireland champion) and Manx fiddler Isla Callister with fellow Scots Alasdair MacKenzie (guitar and voice), Rory Matheson (piano) and Craig Baxter (bodhran).
