rhythmnreel undertake a huge variety of gigs each year, both at home in Scotland and regularly overseas, and are generally in high demand throughout the year.  

These gigs range in any year from music festivals/venues, highland games dances, village hall gigs, street parties and summer marquee dances through to numerous private functions including weddings, Christmas party nights and private parties of just about every description.

Our set list generally at each gig covers a mix of four main aspects, Trad Scottish dance tunes, well known cover songs, pipe and fiddle led Celtic rock and original songs.  The mix of each varies with the type of gig, but generally a wedding/function will include mainly Scottish dances, well known covers and some Celtic rock, whereas at other events such as music venues/festivals and overseas gigs we will do a lot less covers and we will bring in more of our own Celtic influenced tunes and songs.
