Treacherous Orchestra Biography

Treacherous Orchestra

A joyous explosion of instrumental brilliance, rampaging humour and cracking tunes, Treacherous Orchestra take modern Scottish dance music into a thrilling new dimension.

Widely praised for their stunning and exciting live shows, they have electrified audiences wherever they’ve played - from remote Hebridean islands to European festivals; from sell-out shows at Celtic Connections to main stage at the world-renowned Cambridge Folk Festival.

Featuring bagpipes, whistles, flutes, fiddles, accordion, banjo, guitars, bass, drums, bodhrán and percussion, their tightly crafted arrangements far transcend mere force of numbers, aligning richly layered, colourful melodies with muscular yet sophisticated rhythmic interplay, forging an irresistibly danceable sound that never fails to get a crowd on its feet.
