Going for over thirty years and stronger than ever! One of Scotland's most popular bands, North Sea Gas entertains with guitars, mandolin, fiddle, bouzouki, bodhran, whistles, banjo, and great vocals featuring tremendous three part harmonies.
Over the years North Sea Gas has released 18 albums and are constantly adding new material to their show. Their latest album, "The Fire and The Passion of Scotland" was released in July 2013. Celtic Radio (USA) named the CD their Album of the Year and they also won first place in the Jigs and Reels category with a piece from the same CD. Their albums, and performances, consistently receive wonderful reviews from folk magazines, newspapers, etc., including Dirty Linen (USA), The Scots Magazine, and The Living Tradition.
Their show, as their albums, consists of traditional, contemporary and self-penned material, all put together with a style of their own. With Gold and Silver disc awards from the Scottish Music Industry Association they consistently sell out shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Continually touring the world, their tours include America, Canada, Germany, Austria, Scotland and many other destinations, including Estonia and Turkey, every year. TV and radio appearances on both sides of the Atlantic include "Late Night Saturday", "Bound for Glory", "Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour" (shown on PBS in the U.S. South), “207” in Maine and "Song of the Mountains" (also shown on select PBS stations in the U.S.). In 2008, North Sea Gas recorded for Chinese Television with an estimated audience of 800 million, a highlight of any bands career!
Put simply, North Sea Gas is a highly entertaining Scottish folk band. Multi-instrumental, tremendous harmonies and great craic, they have an ever-growing fan base which ranges through all age groups thus giving the "Gas" show a universal appeal.
