The Tartan Terrors

What’s not to love about a hand full of crazy Canadians (and one Albany native) – Scottish-Irish music masters all – playing a whole lot of traditionally inspired music with loads of humor, conviction and rock-band energy?

The Tartan Terrors stormed into Proctors’ GE Theatre last Saturday night with the intent of wreaking musical havoc and mayhem – and they did just that during a pair of sometimes silly, high-energy sets. Humor and outstanding musicianship defined the evening’s songfest from the opening instrumental, “The Bloated Sheep,” which veered from a more Celtic traditional folk sound into a rave-up fueled by reggae and hip-hop rhythms.
