The group is made up of young people aged 10 to 18 from all over Angus. The line-up changes as the older members move on and new members join.
Along with the band members, Skirdechal’s repetoire changes over time - the best tunes being the ones you’ve yet to learn. The music varies from traditional fiddle & piping tunes to more modern tunes from Scotland, Ireland, Cape Breton, Brittany & Galicia.
Skirdechal has released a CD entitled “Folk On The Water” that can be downloaded from iTunes - all proceeds from CD sales will go towards supporting the group in the future.

Celtic Thunder is a music group of 5 guys from Ireland and Scotland that has been together for about 4 years now. They have toured America and Canada, along with Australia with their latest album “Heritage”. They started out singing traditional Irish songs in their first album “The Show”, and then saluted their favorite music artists in a Broadway style album “It’s Entertainment”. Just recently, they have gone back to their roots and recorded an album “Heritage”, which consists of traditional Irish songs like “Buachaill on Eirne”, “Whiskey in the Jar” and “Just a Song At Twilight”, and traditional Scottish songs like “Skye Boat Song” and “Black is the Colour”.# Added by NewZealandRed101 .
