Scottish band Treacherous Orchestra and Galician band Fía na Roca are scheduled to perform Friday, January 14th at O2 ABC Glasgow.

Originally spawned amidst the small-hours maelstrom of the Festival Club, 13-man supergroup the Treacherous Orchestra return to the scene of their legendary main-stage debut at Celtic Connections 2009, since when they’ve been hailed far and wide as Scotland’s most exciting new live act.

Bagpipes, fiddles, whistles, flutes and guitars all feature two by two, plus accordion, banjo, bass, and percussion in a spectacular sonic panorama as intricately wrought as it’s incandescently wild.
