For more than 20 years, Toronto’s Enter The Haggis has been bringing a rock edge to contemporary celtic music by effortlessly melding bagpipes and fiddles with classic rock n’ roll instrumentation and AAA-friendly vocals. It all comes together to make this 5-piece unit a favorite of the festival circuit (Milwaukee Irish Festival & Dublin Irish Festival among many others,) the morning show circuit (Live with Regis and Kelly and A&E’s Breakfast With The Arts) and the 10s of thousands of fans, the self-described “Haggis Heads,” who have purchased their records, donated more than $150,000 to finance 3 albums, and made their most recent effort debut at #9 on the Billboard Heatseakers chart. It should be of no surprise then that Enter The Haggis has become a critical favorite, receiving praise from The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Washington Post and Canada’s Globe and Mail.
“If other bands are putting out the equivalent of late-night cable-tv shows, Enter The Haggis is making IMAX films.”
