Awry

Awry

Awry were formed in Edinburgh two years ago at the Forest Cafe and have been playing~psychedelic~ceilidh nights in Edinburgh ever since. This year Awry will be hitting the Scottish festival circuit, hopefully playing to bigger and wilder ceilidhs than ever before! The band is made up of Mark Neilly, Alex Urquhart-Taylor and Morag Brown. Mark has played in a huge range of bands, from folk to psychedelic rock. After spending a year at the Gaelic College, Sabhal Mòr Ostaig on the Isle of Skye, Mark came to Edinburgh to do a degree in Celtic Studies. Alex Urquhart-Taylor first got involved in piping at the age of 8 when he took up the practise chanter. He is a founder member of the National Youth Pipe Band. More recently, Alex has been involved in Donald Shaw's “Harvest”, a musical collaboration brining together traditional musicians from throughout the world with young musicians from Scotland. Morag specialises in Scottish fiddle music (particularly Shetland style), but also plays a number of other styles. She currently performs with Black Cat (Balkan), Dunya (Middle Eastern) and ceilidh bands including Mental Notes, Jiginaboot and Awry.
