Travelling Scots Ceilidh Band

What better way to celebrate Scotland’s Patron Saint than a St Andrews Party!  The Travelling Scots will be back in Cyprus to entertain you in true Scots style with Graeme Mackay on Accordion, Maggie Wellenger on Vocals and Piano and Andy Low on the Bagpipes.  Collectively they are the Travelling Scots Ceilidh Band and after a long absence due to Covid they will be back on form.

The Soulist is their playground for the party dedicated to St Andrew on the 26th November so come along and join in the fun and see for yourself.

Bio:

Graeme has been travelling to Cyprus for 14 years to play for several events, St Andrew being the original reason.  He has played all over the island with various musicians over the years, originally with his brother Stephen.  Back home in Scotland he runs Tweed Ceilidh Band, an exciting modern band with fiddle and drums.  He is the 3rd generation of the Mackay Musical dynasty and is continuing the family tradition as a professional accordionist.

Maggie Wellenger originally from Poland, studied classical music in a school of musical excellence in Poznan.  Her training and hardwork has enabled her to setup a music School in Scotland and now teaches and performs all styles of music.  This is her 3rd trip to Cyprus and is now an important part of  the travelling Scots team.

Andy Low is a popular Bagpiper from the central belt of Scotland.  He has played with various pipe bands and more notably the Red Hot Chili Pipers.  He has been touring with the travelling Scots for many years, he and Graeme share a unique chemistry with their music and stagecraft.
