About The Artists
From a humble beginning in the Scottish Highlands & Islands, Hò-rò are gradually becoming a force to reckon with in the Scottish music scene. This group has held their audience spellbound with their energetic performance, musical tune arrangements everywhere they perform in Scotland. The group released their debut album in the summer of 2016, and the acceptance has been remarkable with colossal success recorded in album sales. With a line-up that features bagpipes, border pipes, accordion, fiddle, and whistles; musical instruments that are aligned with traditional Highland music combined with the sounds of guitar, keyboards, drums, and bodhran, Hò-rò can play diverse styles and produce a set that features rich musical textures. This instrumental mix is complemented further by both the unbeatable poetry of Gaelic song and the vivid storytelling of the Scots song genre.

They formed around 10 years ago. Each person brought their own style/mix of tunes to the band. They liked each other and found playing together was very enjoyable. They’re suckers for a good crowd so our set morphed into a very upbeat, bouncy, enjoyable affair resulting in slow country tunes being played at rock speed, rock tunes being played at reggae speed and reggae tunes played at punk speed! All a bit messed up but great fun to listen to!
