Thirty years and stronger than ever! One of Scotland's most popular folk bands with great vocals and tremendous three part harmonies. Guitars, mandolin, fiddle, bouzouki, whistles, bodhrans, banjo and good humour are all part of the entertainment. They have received gold and silver disc awards from the Scottish Music Industry Association and regularly have sell out shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe!
Their previous album "Rosslyn" received wonderful reviews from folk magazines, newspapers etc including Dirty Linen (USA), the Scots Magazine, and The Living Tradition. Their show, in the same way as their albums, consist of traditional, contemporary and self-penned material all put together in a style of their own. This proves popular during their regular tours of Scotland, America, Canada, Germany, Austria, and many other destinations every year also in TV and radio appearances both sides of the Atlantic including Late Night Saturday and Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour, one of the biggest radio shows in the USA.
Besides the bands regular tours abroad in the last few years they have endeavoured to take their show to the theatres, art centre's and community halls around Scotland. Touring and seeing their native land is something the band really enjoys.
We could say more but put simply "North Sea Gas" are a highly entertaining Scottish folk band who have an ever-growing fan base ranging through all age groups thus giving the "Gas" show a wonderful atmosphere.
