Bannockburn, are the group formed by Ted Christopher initially to play for 20,000 of the “Tartan Army” at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow, before Scotland games.
They have gone from strength to strength since then, and are seasoned travellers who go all over the world, playing their wonderful music. Ted chose the name “Bannockburn” as it is a word that instantly gives a sense of pride and identity to all Scots worldwide.
They also play on a regular basis in Azerbaijan where the band has adopted an orphanage in Baku. In that country they are jokingly referred to as the Caledonian Society’s resident band. Ted and fiddler Davie Sinclair have been awarded honorary membership of The Baku Caledonian Society.
The Gorms play mostly traditional scottish folk music in their own distinctive way. An element of humour usually runs through their marathon performances, which run the gamut from soft and wistful to (more often) very rowdy indeed.
