Back of the Moon are a traditional Scottish folk band, with both new and traditional tunes and songs cast in fresh modern sounding arrangements. Since forming in 2000, the band have rapidly gained a reputation for their dynamic live performances, touring annually throughout the UK, Canada, USA and eight different European Countries. Back of the Moon create their giant acoustic sound through a tightly woven frontline of Scottish border pipes and fiddle, an intimate pairing of low whistle and flute, the distinctive rhythmic force of their guitar/piano rhythm combo, at times augmented by bodhran and Cape Breton Stepdancing, and awesome three-part vocal harmonies in their Scottish songs - in which each unique singer takes the lead.
