Skye band Niteworks launch debut Celtic fusion album at SWG3

Skye band Niteworks launch debut Celtic fusion album at SWG3

Skye band Niteworks are set to launch their debut album with a live show in Glasgow this weekend.

With their innovative fusion of traditional Celtic music and electronica in new record 'NW', the pioneering foursome will take to the stage at SWG3 on Saturday night in culmination of a journey which began in a blaze of bagpipes and keyboards back in 2008.

"We've been in a band together since high school and we've always been mates," explains drummer Ruairidh Graham.

"Just after school finished, we’d done the rock thing for a while and decided to go in a different kind of direction, but we’ve tried to keep to our traditional roots as much as possible."

And that's been the trick for Skye talent Ruairidh, Allan MacDonald, Christopher Nicolson and Innes Strachan.

After their debut release Obair Oidhche was met with critical acclaim in 2011, they've continued to gig across the country from the Hebridean Celtic Festival, where they made a triumphant return in the summer, to the likes of Tartan Heart and even unique sell out shows like Bogbain Farm in 2012.

Some of their material was unveiled at Heb Celt in July, among them stand out tracks Poor Ben featuring Donald Macdonald as track two on NW, Laura Donnelly, Alasdair Whyte, Dierdrie Graham and Kathleen MacInnes among other collaborators who also include the magnificent Mairearad Green, Andrew MacPherson, Fiona Macaskill and Hamish Napier.

And as those who attend in Glasgow this Saturday will discover, they travel well to the big city stages too.

"We just kind of make tracks and take things from there," said Ruairidh, 26.

"We’re quite confident with our sound now. We’ve really been working on these tracks over the last three years but it came to a point where we decided to take things a bit more seriously.

"We’ve put quite a lot into the launch night and it will probably be the most impressive production we’ve ever done before."

Niteworks launch NW at Glasgow’s SWG3 Warehouse on October 24 at 9pm. Tickets available online
