A UNIQUE night of symbolic music and honouring Highland traditions is to be held in Dunfermline.

Clann An Drumma will be invading PJ Molloys and will bring with them pipes, drums and a high energy performance.

The group, fronted by Scottish mythology and history enthusiast Jamie Wilson, promise an experience which weaves together music, tradition and history, alongside a bit of banter.

Jamie said: “We wear belted plaid in a symbolic way, to honour our Highland ancestors.

“It’s philosophy and symbolism, the bagpipes weaving with the drums gives a unique hybrid.

“It is a sound which is stimulating and inspiring, this is music our ancestors listened to going into battle or at the death of a clan member.”

After around 25 minutes of “fire and thunder”, Clann An Drumma’s shows move into their “Sons of Alba” section, an acoustic set where a smaller line-up guides the audience through anything from the Declaration of Arbroath to the Scottish people arriving in Nova Scotia.

“It allows people to catch their break,” Jamie explained.

“We take the audience away up, then back down, then then bring them up again.

“People leave in a state of ecstasy and drained, we put 100 per cent into everything, whether it’s a wedding event or a gala day.

“People are very stimulated when reminded of who they are and where they come from.

“It’s not a history lesson but the hope is to inspire.”

Clann An Drumma translates to children of the drums and have been performing in different shapes and forms for more than 20 years.

Jamie says the current line-up - which includes himself as well as two pipers and two main drummers - don’t settle for anything less than a “magnificent” rating of their performance.

“The movement of the band is like a battle,” he said.

“It is majestically somewhere between a psychotic ballerina and a warrior on the battlefield.”

The band hopes to bring that energy to Dunfermline on Wednesday, August 23, at PJ Molloys.

Tickets are available now via Eventbrite.
