Enter The Haggis
Enter The Haggis
Since 1995, Enter The Haggis have led the charge among Celtic Folk Rock bands, delighting fans with their memorable performances, inspired songwriting, musical proficiency and high quality recordings. The Toronto-based band has released eight acclaimed studio albums, the most recent debuting at #9 on the U.S. national Billboard Heatseekers charts. Their original songs such as “One Last Drink”, “Down With The Ship” and “Gasoline” have become folk rock anthems, appearing in films such as “Goon”, “10mph” and “Addicted to Plastic”, and reaching as high as #25 on U.S. radio.

The band’s new single, “Mrs. Elliott”, is a triumphant return to form, showcasing Enter The Haggis’ signature sound and instrumentation; bagpipes blaze over a powerhouse hard-rock rhythm section as Lewington and Buchanan trade off on lead vocals. “Mrs. Elliott” is the opening track on the band’s 20th Anniversary retrospective double album “Cheers and Echoes”, which features the band’s best loved songs and is available November 2015. The Cheers and Echoes Tour kicks off early in 2016.
Jamie McLean Band
Jamie McLean Band
Jamie McLean had a big decision to make in 2006. He could continue to tour the globe as the guitarist for New Orleans’ famed Dirty Dozen Brass Band playing sets at Madison Square Garden, Bonnaroo, Japan’s Fuji Rock and working with the likes of Elvis Costello, Dave Matthews and Norah Jones. Or he could do it his way, take the road less traveled and begin to lead Jamie McLean Band. It seemed as though there was only one option.

“It was certainly a tough choice to leave my bread and butter gig but I could feel it in my heart that I needed to be singing and recording and performing my own music. I’ve never been happier!”

For the last five years McLean has never looked back and he’s been relentlessly touring and recording with Jamie McLean Band. Jamie McLean Band, which also features Brian Griffin on drums and Ben Mars on bass has released 5 albums Sunday Morning (2011), Time Of My Life (2011), Completely (2010), American Heartache (2008) and This Time Around (2006).

Jamie McLean Band will tour behind their new album throughout the US and Canada this summer. Don’t miss their amazing live set when they roll into a town near you!
