Think of it as “Neo-Trad." (Google it!) Together since 1999 and from Duluth GA, THE BORDERCOLLIES are all about a unique mix of traditional Celtic and folk. Their signature sound incorporates tight trad instrumentation and three part vocal harmonies. “One of our signature tricks is that we like to take a traditional tune and combine it into a song, maybe using a part for the middle-eight and then running the whole reel or jig at the end of the song. We sometimes use that trick with our originals as well.”
"Balancing their own compositions with traditional tunes as well as covers by the likes of Dougie MacLean, the Collies effortlessly inhabit the world between tradition and innovation." - Carl McColman, New Age Voice.
"A promising blast form the Deep South." -John O’Regan, fRoots (UK)
