Shooglenifty was formed in 1990 by musicians from the Scottish Highlands, Orkney and Edinburgh. Its bright spark was the idea of fusing traditional and traditional-sounding melodies with the beats and basslines of a mixed bag of more contemporary influences. As happy playing a small highland village hall as they are on an outdoor festival stage playing to tens of thousands, the Shoogles (as they’re known to their fans) have promoted Scottish music all over the world for three decades.

In 2015, Shooglenifty celebrated their 25th Anniversary by playing venues in Sarawak and Stornoway, Lorient and London, Adelaide and Aberdeen, Bangalore and Bristol, and released their seventh studio album The Untied Knot. This introduced their newest member, puirt à beul vocalist Kaela Rowan. It received a 5 star ‘Top of the World’ rating in Songlines, among many other favourable reviews. Songlines also nominated the band for Best Group in early 2016. The Untied Knot was nominated for Best Album at ‘Na Trads 2015’ – the Scottish Traditional Music Awards.

In October 2016, the band lost their fiddler Angus R. Grant to cancer, and took the end of that year for a well-earned pause. They were bowled over by the numerous tributes and stories shared about their influential front man, not to mention  the outpouring of love for Angus on social media. In January 2017 they channelled that emotion into a tribute gig for Angus at Celtic Connections featuring no less than 62 musicians who were all touched by his music.

In February 2018, Eilidh Shaw joined the band as permanent fiddle player. Eilidh is a West Highland fiddler with a playful, infectious energy who was taught by Aonghas Grant (our Angus’s father).

Shooglenifty reached the ripe old age of 30 in 2020. Thankfully their latest album, Acid Croft Vol 9, was already in the can. A few crazy promo videos were made during lockdown and there was an online album launch in September 2020. In the summer of 2021 the band returned to live performances at some open air festivals. For 2024 they are on the road again!
