Come welcome one of Scotland's most popular folk bands, North Sea Gas, to the One World Coffeehouseduring their North American tour. With their songs, new and old, great instrumentals, tremendous three-part harmonies, and keen sense of fun, they provide a rousing show for everyone!

Going for over thirty years and stronger than ever, North Sea Gas have recorded 17 albums, won numerous awards, and performed to audiences throughout Great Britain, Europe, Scandinavia, Australia, Canada, and the United States.  Their shows consist of traditional Scottish and Irish music, contemporary and self-penned songs and tunes on everything from guitars, fiddles, mandolins, and banjos to mandolas, bodhrans, bouzoukis, and whistles. With Gold and Silver disc awards from the Scottish Music Industry Association, they consistently sell out shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Help us make a sellout show in Maryland!

The trio features:
  • Dave Gilfillan (Lead and Harmony Vocals, Guitar, Banjo, Mandola, and Bodhran) is a founding member of North Sea Gas. He has built up a reputation for rousing vocals, heartfelt ballads and a sense of on-stage fun.
  • Grant Simpson (Fiddle, Mandolin, Harmony Vocals) is a full time musician who has played with many leading musicians in the folk world. He has recorded with various artists, organizing and fronting many of the folk music sessions in and around Edinburgh.
  • Ronnie ("Mac") MacDonald (Lead and Harmony Vocals, Guitar and Bouzouki) infuses the group with his great love of Scottish folk music and sense of humor.
