Traditional and contemporary folk song from Scotland and beyond. 

Tarneybackle was formed in 2000 and since then have toured extensively, releasing five albums and a DVD.

We know how much you like to sing at our concerts.  We are now providing chorus books.  Hope you like them.

 For future gigs see our Gig listings and new Gig Map page for information.  Why not plan to come and hear us in some of the lovely locations we are performing at?
Recording has started for album number 6.  It is likely that we will be releasing it in April/ May of 2015. 
We had a great time at the Cairncastle Ulster Scots Festival in Co. Antrim in July.  We enjoyed both performing at the concert and soiree, and joining with local musicians at the Saturday afternoon sessions.
Our August tour went well.  Its always great to be in Applecross, where we are always given such a great reception by everyone, and are well looked after by Judy and the team in the Inn.  Raasay was a lovely gig, and it is a beautiful island too.  Our return to Poolewe was well attended and we'll be back there next year. 
We are now planning next year's tours and gigs.  
Many thanks to ALASDAIR MACLEAN for the review in August's Scots Magazine.  We've copied this and a review from "The Bridge" in our CD section of this website.

We have loaded clips from the village hall concerts of 2013 onto YouTube.
