Tannahill Weavers live concert at the Goathland Hut, indoor well-ventilated space near Whitby in the midst of the North Yorkshire moors .

About this event

Spend an afternoon surrounded by the Yorkshire moors, listening to the upbeat music of the Tannahill Weavers, one of Scotland’s premier traditional bands. The Goathland Hut offers a spacious, well ventilated, modern venue along with a well-stocked bar. Camper vans welcome (£10/night). Doors open at 2:30 pm. Early birds should plan on spending some time in the charming village of Goathland (the setting for the popular YTV series Heartbeat), where coffee shops and inns offer refreshment and a chance to relax before the show.

The Tannahill Weavers turn their acoustic excitement loose on audiences with an electrifying effect. A unique combination of traditional melodies, driving rhythmic accompaniment, and rich vocals makes their performances unforgettable. For more than 50 years the Tannahill Weavers (original members Roy Gullane on guitar/vocals and Phil Smilie on whistles/bodhran/vocals; plus newcomers Malcolm Bushby on fiddle and Lorne MacDougal on pipes) have thrilled audiences with their diverse repertoire, fire-driven instrumentals, topical songs, original ballads and lullabies. Their music demonstrates to old and young alike the rich and varied musical heritage of the Celtic people.

The “Tannies” have received worldwide accolades consistently over the years for their exuberant performances and outstanding recording efforts that seemingly can't get better—yet continue to do just that. As the Winnipeg Free Press noted, "The Tannahill Weavers—properly harnessed—could probably power an entire city for a year. . . . The music may be old time Celtic, but the drive and enthusiasm are akin to straight ahead rock and roll."

The Abbott Farm Lane runs next to the Goathland Hotel. The Goathland Hut is the first left turn off the Abbott Farm Lane. There is plenty of on-site parking.
