Much has changed since their first EP as a trio in 2012. The Scott Wood Band have embraced their musical and personnel change, and created their ground-breaking debut album: Upsurge.
Described as “a collaboration of the most promising young Scottish Musicians”, and fronted by one of the world’s leading young bagpipers, the band features finalists from the BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year and BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year competitions. Their success was also recognised with a nomination for the prestigious 'Folk Band of the Year' category at the 2014 BBC MG ALBA Scots Trad Awards.
They have collectively toured the world with bands such as: Mànran, Wolfstone, Skerryvore, RURA, The Mischa MacPherson Trio, Fat-Suit and the Red Hot Chilli Pipers, and band’s large and diverse following has already seen them entertain at many major festivals throughout the UK and Europe.
