Lachlan is a Celtic music duo rooted in fast paced traditional melodies and stories of the Celtic isles.
Lachlan has been playing Irish and Scottish music from as far as north as Chicago for the Chicago Gaelic Park Irish Fest, Indiana and as far south as Maryville, Tennessee near Knoxville for the Smoky Mountain Scottish Festival & Games. Even though Lachlan only has two members people are pleasantly surprised by their huge sound. They are loved for their driving bass beat and melodic high ends. The duo is perfect for any venue from small bars to outdoor amphitheaters. Lachlan can get any group to join in on their audience participation song and get them dancing to their tunes.
