The 12-piece Treacherous Orchestra labelled as a steam punk folk band, are to wind up a summer full of packed festival gigs, with a short UK tour which will take them to Aberdeen’s Lemon Tree on Friday, December 11.
Hailing from various parts of Scotland and Ireland each date on the tour has a particular significance to a band member, and venues were chosen for their connections with the band.
“We come from all over the place,” said guitarist Duncan Lyall, “and we all have links with different cities and towns; for example three of our band are originally from Inverness.”
The tour follows on from a summer full of packed festivals where they played as far afield as the Isle of Lewis in the West Highlands of Scotland to a headline slot at Cambridge Folk Festival.
“It’s been an amazing year” added fiddle player Adam Sutherland. “We were
finalists in the Scottish Album of the Year Award – alongside Idlewild and Paolo Nutini to name a few – and are ending the year with a nomination for Album of the Year and Live Act of the Year at the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards.”
