(pronounced ‘shore’ and comes from the Gaelic word ‘Saorsa’, meaning freedom / liberty)
From Central Scotland and Fife, the ancient Celtic Kingdom of Scotland,
Saor Patrol and their unique sound of Scotland in the 21st century, brings together the sounds of the past into the present and launches the listener into an ‘Exciting Clann and almost Tribal Experience’.
Those that have stood before SAOR PATROL while performing live never forget the feeling of power the feed the crowd and the visual image of their live experience. The energy they share on stage and with their audience during a performance, with their vibrant pipe tunes and thundering drum rhythms please and excite many a crowd from all walks of life.
The sound that they started with was referred to as “Tribal Rock”. When they added the electric guitar some said it was “Celtic Rock”. When they shared a stage at a rock festival in England with Motorhead, their sound was refered to by Lemmy himself as “The Motorhead of Folk”. However over the years their sound has evolved into what is now refered to as Scottish Medieval Rock. A sound you will not forget.
[Rer Ter] A broad Glaswegian phrase meaning great time.
