Scottish folk fusion stars Shooglenifty will be performing tunes and songs old and new when they head back New Zealand in October. Shooglenifty stir up a fiery and infectious blend of Celtic traditional music and dance grooves known as ‘hypno-folkadelic ambient trad’. Famed for their out-of-the-box performances, fling your frustrations out the door and skip right up to the cèilidh with these inventive and brilliant Scots.
Shooglenifty was formed in 1990 by musicians from the Scottish Highlands, Orkney and Edinburgh, its bright spark was the idea of fusing traditional and traditional-sounding melodies with the beats and basslines of a mixed bag of more contemporary influences. As happy playing a small highland village hall as they are on an outdoor festival stage playing to tens of thousands, the Shoogles (as they’re known to their fans) have promoted Scottish music all over the world for more nearly three decades.
