Trail West are a band leading the thriving scene of Gaels in the city of Glasgow.
Having started out as a four-piece line-up with strong links to the Hebridean Isles of Tiree and South Uist, Trail West now perform as a six-piece outfit with the addition of Jonathan Gillespie from Glasgow on keyboard and vocals along with Allan J Nairn from Ardnamurchan on electric guitar.
To date they have released three albums, showing the band’s progression with a wide selection of songs becoming an integral part of their repertoire alongside the recognisable accordion and whistle combination of Seonaidh MacIntyre and Ian Smith.
2020 is a big year for the band as they celebrate 'Ten Years of Trail West', with a run of gigs throughout the year to mark the occasion, culminating in a special show at Glasgow’s Barrowlands on the 12th September to celebrate the milestone.
