Albannach is Scots-Gaelic for “Scottish” or “Scotsman”. That’s exactly what we are. Albannach is comprised of three Scotsmen and one Scottish lass, all born and bred in Scotland! Our fifth and newest member is an American born Scot, but we won’t hold it against him. Our main purpose in life is to share our intriguing culture, history and heritage with you by means of our music.
Albannach is not just another Scottish ‘Pipes & Drums’ band, our primal drumming and precise piping stirs the soul of anyone who hears them – young and old! With a champion piper, an award winning lead drummer, the unique sounds and talents of a didgeridoo player, and the tribal style bass drumming – our music isn’t for the faint of heart! It’s aggressive, like a Celtic punch to the face!

The American Rogues
"FESTIVAL FAVORITES THAT GIVE FANS ELECTRICALLY CHARGED CELTIC MUSIC AT ITS FINEST!" -- NYS MUSIC. FROM SCOTLAND TO JAPAN, ITALY TO CUBA, SPAIN TO GUAM TO THE Middle East, AND ACROSS NORTH AMERICA THE AMERICAN ROGUES ARE EMBRACING THE WORLDS OF CELTIC, ROCK, ROOTS, SOUNDTRACK, WORLD, MILITARY, JAPANESE, AND CLASSICAL MUSIC.
Drawing favorable comparisons to Wolfstone, Afro Celt Sound System, and Trans-Siberian Orchestra and consistently providing performances from Grade 1 bagpipers and other world class musicians this Canadian/American group has electrified audiences on three continents for many years. They have added to their ever-growing family of fans at music festivals, theaters, Highland Games, military bases, clubs, weddings, memorial ceremonies, wineries, and corporate events -- anywhere that presents top-quality, high-energy music. This has even included shows with world-renowned violinist/composers Lindsey Stirling and Alison Krauss, as well as airplay on TV and radio, and shows at non-Celtic venues such as the World Music Festival in Quebec, Canada where they kicked off the 6 day event to widespread acclaim. In 2017 they became the "St. Paddy's Band" of Rogers radio stations nationwide when they recorded Celtic versions of contemporary songs for airplay, 2018 saw them appear at festivals in Scotland (including their appearance as the first international act at the Cowal Highland Gathering, one of the largest Celtic events in the world), and 2019 saw them headline in Abu Dhabi and at the Greg Frewin Theatre in Niagara Falls, and sell out the Harbourfront Centre Theatre in Toronto with Japanese taiko group, Nagata Shachu. For 2020 they have been invited to return to Scotland to perform the 150th Crieff Highland Gathering and they will also continue to perform Celtic/Japanese Hybrid Music with Nagata Shachu under the name "The Dragon & the Rising Sun". With shows in Japan, Scotland, Italy, Spain, Guam, Cuba, Greece, and the United Arab Emirates, their hard won road successes have established them as artists with bona fide international acclaim. Renowned for their musical skill, quick wit, compelling storytelling, and engaging stage show the AMERICAN ROGUES have mastered the art of creating an immediate connection with audiences who can't stay in their seats. They are equally known for their epic, multi-instrumental sound that crosses the musical landscape to include jigs, reels, hornpipes, ballads, originals, covers, soundtracks, patriotic and military music, Irish foot-stompers and more. The AMERICAN ROGUES are fast becoming a household name with music lovers around the world, loved by young and old of all backgrounds.
Western Mass Fiddler David Breguet, Scottish-born guitarist John Kinnear, and the multi-talented Bassist Rick Ottman form Shindig; a musical trio celebrating foot-stomping Celtic tunes.

Charlie Zahm is one of the most popular soloists at Celtic music festivals, Maritime and Early American music events anywhere east of the Mississippi. With a baritone voice some have described as "coming along once in a generation," Charlie has become one of the most successful performers on the Celtic festival circuit, weaving magical moments of Scottish and Irish history for the listener and viewer, with passion for the performance and a chosen repertoire pleasing to all members of the family. A master of the guitar as well, Charlie brings an authentic love and respect for the music he sings. Since he's been old enough to sing, Charlie has been entertaining audiences with the beautiful Celtic songs and melodies he first heard in the largely Scottish province of his mother's birth, Ontario, Canada. Keenly aware of his own heritage, which includes healthy doses of Scottish and Irish blood on both sides of his family,
