Biography

Oban, United Kingdom (1980 – present)

Capercaillie is a folk band founded in Oban, Scotland in the 1980s by Donald Shaw and fronted by Karen Matheson. They recorded their first album, Cascade, in 1984. Their 1992 EP Coisich, a Rùin was the first ever Scottish Gaelic language record to reach the UK Top 40 singles chart. They have also pioneered the integration of divergent styles, including some electronics and African rhythms, into their music, though it is still primarily Scottish folk music.

    I saw Capercaillie on my 6th or 7th birthday. My mum loves her folk so we used to get taken along to see all sorts of bands. I find it amusing that now, as an adult, I am revisiting the music she used to make us listen to. I'm also a big fan of folk metal, so a slight mix up of mine and her taste haha! Good band. Still stir a lot of emotions for me. Especially Waiting for the Wheel to Turn. Guess they're one reason I decided to learn Gaelic and study Celtic at university.

    I'm so happy to see "Little do they know" between top 10! But I hope, someday, to see Dr. MacPhail's reel from Delirium there! It's absolutely perfect!
