Enter The Haggis
For the better part of two decades, Toronto’s Enter The Haggis has combined bagpipesand fiddles with a rock rhythm section to create a distinctively eclectic sound, praised byThe Boston Globe, The Washington Post and Canada’s Globe and Mail. Their songsoffer singalong melodies and deep, meaningful lyrics which tell the stories of everydayhard working people, often faced with seemingly insurmountable challenges. Signaturesongs like “One Last Drink”, “Gasoline”, “Down With The Ship” and “Lancaster Gate”have had millions of plays on social media and streaming sites, have appeared inHollywood movies, and have been performed and recorded by artists around the world.Enter The Haggis is clearly comfortable on the stage and develops an easy rapportwith audiences, sharing the stories behind their songs and laughing through touranecdotes. The show is exciting and dynamic, featuring unpredictable and spontaneousmoments. One song might feature drummer Bruce McCarthy taking a drum solo onTrevor Lewington’s guitar strings, while the next song breaks down into a fierce battlebetween fiddle and harmonica. Sometimes during an encore, the band will leave thestage entirely to perform acoustically standing on chairs in the audience. Rose Baldino(House of Hamill, Burning Bridget Cleary) joined the band on fiddle and vocals in2020, strengthening the traditional sound of their performances.Enter The Haggis’ commitment to putting on a great show every single night has madethem a favorite at festivals and performing arts centers across the US and Canada. As aresult, ETH shows have become an annual tradition on some of the most prestigiousstages on the continent.

The next fan tour is planned forScotland in 2022.Enter The Haggis has appeared on “Live with Regis and Kelly” and “A&E’sBreakfast With The Arts”, and was the feature of an hour-long PBS concert specialwhich aired for months on more than eighty affiliate stations across the US. The band’slegions of die-hard fans (the self-described “Haggis Heads“) have crowdfunded the lastfour ETH albums, and played a huge part in propelling the most recent full-length recordto its debut at #9 on the national ”Billboard Heatseekers" chart.
