Back of the Moon

BACK OF THE MOON are one of Scotland's finest Trad bands. 2005 saw them win 'Best Folk Band' at the Scottish Trad Music Awards, while their brilliant new album 'Luminosity' was nominated for 'Best Album'. Since forming in 2000, the band have rapidly gained a reputation for their dynamic live performances. Back of the Moon create a giant acoustic sound through their tightly-woven frontline of Scottish border pipes and fiddle, the intimate pairing of low whistle and flute, the distinctive rhythmic force of their guitar/piano rhythm combo, and awesome three-part vocal harmonies in their Scottish songs - in which each unique singer takes the lead. At the Scots Trad Music Awards 2003, the band won the 'Best Up and Coming Band' award. At a live concert in Slovenia they were filmed by the BBC for Burn's night 2005, and their live set at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall during Celtic Connections 2003 was broadcast on BBC Radio Scotland. Multi-instrumentalist Ali Hutton joined the band for their third album 'Luminosity', released in August 2005. The album was nominated for 'Best Album' at the Scots Trad Awards and reviewed with four stars in the Herald and Scotsman. The awards in 2005 also saw a nomination for Hamish Napier as 'Best up and Coming Artist', but most impressive of all, after 5 years of hard work and touring in Canada, Europe and up and down the UK, Back of the Moon received 'Best Folk Band'.
