Songs to get your toes tapping - Tarneybackle.

Spring Highland Tour: - Many thanks to owners and staff of The Applecross Inn, Torridon Inn and Badachro Inn and to fans, new and old who came to see us.  We had a great time and  look forward to the next one in July.
 Mugstock Festival -  We are delighted to be returning to Mugstock Festival at Mugdock Park at the end of July.  You can find more details on the festival Facebook page.  The music and other entertainment is second to none.  It is a truly family friendly festival.  If you go to one event this summer, go to Mugstock.
Charity Concert - The charity fundraiser for Blackford Parish Church at Blackford Bowling Club raised £880
Dunblane Fling - The members of Tarneybackle have a long history of involvement  with The Dunblane Fling.  We are delighted to be returning as the support to Phil Cunningham and Aly Bain at the Dunblane Centre on 27th May. 
Our gigs calendar for 2018 is a bit different from previous years as we have added several new folk clubs this year.  Our Highland tours  will be in April, July and October.
"Singing Land" is Tarneybackle's sixth album.  You can buy it at our gigs, by post from us or download it from I Tunes and Amazon.  You can also listen to it on Spotify.  See "Buy CDs and Read Reviews" for Living Tradition's review of this album.
"The Diamond" is now available for download from I Tunes and Amazon.  You can also listen to it on Spotify. 
 We know how much you like to sing at our concerts.  We are now poviding chorus books at most of our concerts.  Hope you like them.

 For future gigs see our Gig listings page for information.  Why not plan to come and hear us in some of the lovely locations we are performing at? 
We have loaded clips from the village hall concerts of 2013 onto YouTube.
