The Chair on-stage is an experience that will have even the most reserved audience beating a path to the dance floor. Melodies from the band's native Orkney are mashed up with blues, dub and klezmer in an 8-piece riot of fiddles, banjos, accordions and drums. Collectively, the sound approaches the energy levels of a rock gig, yet remains acoustic at heart. The Chair, a must-see festival band, were voted Band of the Year at the 2008 MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards.

The new album from The Chair, The Road to Hammer Junkie, is now available to download from iTunes and Amazon, or you can order the CD from various outlets including Music Scotland and Foot Stompin' Celtic Music.

(By the way, if you do buy a copy of the CD, there's something you should know ...)
