The Tartan Terrors are their own blend of musical stylings mixing traditional Celtic folklore, dance, and humor all with a twist of Rock and Roll. Their band features classic bagpipes and fiddle, driving drum tones, and signature guitar styles.

The band prides themselves on their mission of making Celtic music fun and accessible to any audience, the Terrors have played stages across North America, including The Iridium, Times Square, NYC, Daryl’s House Club, Pawling, NY, Freeman Arts Pavilion, Selbyville, DE, Glasgow Lands Scottish Festival, Florence, MA, and The Celtic Music & Craft Beer Festival in Dunedin, FL. They have also appeared on television such as ABC’s Good Morning America.
