The Treacherous Orchestra - Origins: The long-awaited debut album from this most talked about, very exciting fusion band. Emerging from the vibrant melting-pot of Glasgow’s 21st-century folk scene, the 11-piece Treacherous Orchestra take Scottish dance music into a thrilling new dimension. Having grown up under the influence of such pioneering fusion acts as Shooglenifty, Martyn Bennett and Croft No 5, they draw simultaneously on deep traditional roots and contemporary influences. Featuring bagpipes, whistles, flutes, fiddles, accordion, banjo, guitars, bass, drums and percussion, their repertoire consists almost entirely of original tunes. Each member of the band brings a strong individual sound and instrumental style to this powerful blending of the old with the new. They combine ferocious energy and sophisticated musical arrangements with explosive results and have earned a fearsome reputation as an incendiary live act. ’Origins’ is an accomplished piece of work; bursting with ideas and musicality - the culmination of many years of playing, learning and having fun. Brilliant stuff!
