Saor Patrol ( pronounced 'shore' and comes from the Gaelic word ‘Saorsa’, meaning freedom / liberty)
From Central Scotland and Fife, the ancient Celtic Kingdom of Scotland, Saor Patrol and their unique sound of Scotland in the 21st century, brings together the sounds of the past into the present and launches the listener into an 'Exciting Tribal Experience'.
Those that have heard and experienced SAOR PATROL live never to forget the visual image of their live experience.The energy they share with their audience during a performance, with their vibrant pipe tunes and drum rhythms that please and excite many a crowd from all walks of life.
Like the music of Saor Patrol, Bluegrass, Rockabilly, and as many other sounds have evolved from traditional Scottish and Irish music over the centuries, this is their contribution!!
Still holding onto their unique sound and style they continue to combine old musical Celtic roots with the new.
Saor Patrol can now also offer an alternative, more ‘Rock’ orientated set, for their audiences. After a year of sampling and try outs with their previous guitarist they now have the man for the job. So you choose, TRIBAL PIPES & DRUMS or TRIBAL CELTIC ROCK.
Saor Patrol have all there music available as MP3 Files now as well as their fast growing back catalogue of CD's, DVD & merchandise also that include:
Esspee their first Album from the early days, now very rare, was followed by Black Bull along with EPs I an II also very rare but available by request.
Their third album Aptly called Full Boar is one of their most favourite contribution.
The next album Full Throttle started as a bit of fun. Under the suggestion of a longtime friend Clive Jackson of Doctor and the Medics and a growing Rock orientated fanbase this heavily influenced an experiment that really worked, (hence the play with words), this has surprised and pleased people from all over the world and received some excellent reviews. They recently teamed up with their producer Paul Kane on this project and produced a semi electric album with guitars, Keyboards and Irish flutes. This album along with their backlog is now heavily distributed and available and easy to buy on-line.
The sound that they have evolved and developed has been referred to as “Tribal” and “Celtic Rock” and the band have been referred to by Lemmy himself as
“The Motorhead of Folk” when we played at the same Rock Festival in England UK.
Saor Patrol have performed at festivals throughout the UK, Europe, Asia and the USA and are available for bookings.
You can book them for a unique Scottish Celtic experience for Festivals, Corporate and Public Events, Private Functions, Weddings, Ceilidhs, Gatherings, internationally bringing a taste of Scottish tradition with a difference to any event.
Saor Patrol continue to spread their unique music touring the world, with future performances encompassing such countries as the UK, U.S.A, Italy, Japan, Taiwan, Norway, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Africa, Australia.
There is more to the band members of Saor Patrol than meets the eye, they are a band for a more complicated reason, which they do not always get the opportunity to convey to their audience. They travel and perform to allow them to realise an equally fantastic goal.They are all volunteers of The Clanranald Trust for Scotland, a recognised Scottish Charity, whose primary aim is the promotion of Scottish Cultural and Heritage through Entertainment and Education.
While visiting some countries they provide talks on their culture as an educational benefit to youths and adults alike who may have never encountered the Scots close up and in person.
They are also members of Combat International a recognised organisation that supplies trained combat crews and advisors to the Film and TV industry Internationally.
Although the band is separate from the Trust, one heavily promotes each other at all times, see Clanranald Trust for Scotland
