About the band
"Raw energy and a modern young twist" - Celtic Music Radio
Àirdan are an exciting trad band born from the pubs of Edinburgh. Their high energy grooves and dynamic arrangements see melodies and riffs juggled between fiddle (Paul Sinclair), accordion (Coll Williamson), guitar (David Lennon) and drums (Ewa Adamiec). A small madhouse of cultures and influences, this multinational group of musicians first met in 2017 through their shared thirst for Scottish trad music, and have now joined forces to captivate listeners with their fresh and exciting take on their unique musical heritage.
Formed in 2021, the band have already performed at events and festivals in Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Finland, and were chosen as a "Highly Recommended" act at the Danny Kyle Open Stage at Celtic Connections 2022. They have recently released their first single, and are working on an album to come out later in the year.
