Scrum first saw the light of day in April 2004. Their music has always been described as “Power Folk”: Rock with Scottish and Irish influences in which bagpipes and fiddle play a big part.
Scrum have been invited to many festivals and concerts over the last 6 years and everywhere they?ve played both audience and band were very enthusiastic which shows in the support of an ever increasing fan base. Over the last 2 years Scrum have been invited to play at festivals outside the Netherlands as well and have been receiving a very warm welcome, and to most of these festivals they have been invited to return in the nearby future.
A few of the highlights over the last years:
- The band’s very own blend whisky has been introduced;
- The single “Drunk Again” gets a place in the Top 100;
- Numerous gigs played at festivals in Belgium, Germany, Holland and Denmark;
- Sharing the stage with bands such as The Dubliners, Beggars Row, Rapalje and Omnia;
- In January 2009 Scrum wins an award for being “Best Live Band of 2008 NL”;
- 2006: Scrum records and releases the studio album “Pro Libertate”;
- 2008: Scrum records and releases a 5 track acoustic live album, simply called “Live Acoustic”;
- 2010: Scrum release their second studio album called “Killing Time”;
During every gig Scrum go for the highest goal: To send the audience home, totally worn out and with a big smile.
Scrum are: Skottie: vocals, guitar, mandolin and banjo, Marco: bass, accordion, Robin: guitar, Oscar: drums, Fred: bagpipes, tin whistle, Corné: fiddle.
