Niteworks are Ruairidh Graham, Allan MacDonald, Christopher Nicolson and Innes Strachan. Formed on the Isle of Skye, they fuse Gaelic language and traditional music with electronic influences to create a fresh and exhilarating sound. Following their first EP ‘Niteworks : Obair Oidhche’ in 2011 the band were winners of the ‘Up and Coming Artist of the Year’ award at the 2012 Scottish Trad Awards. In 2015 the band released their highly anticipated debut album NW to acclaim from around the folk community. The band’s unique sound comes into its own in the live arena with the last year alone having seen multiple sold-out shows in Glasgow and stage-closing performances at festivals across Scotland, leaving packed crowds pulsating into the night.
Of all the up and coming bands I’ve seen during my 25 years with the Peatbog Faeries I would say Niteworks have the most potential. Fresh and innovative, catch them if you can.
Peter Morrison – Peatbog Faeries.
Niteworks show that it’s possible to mix folk and modern club music without having to settle for second best in either.

Album ‘NW’ (2015)
Our debut album featuring vocals and instrumentation from some of Scotland’s finest musicians and singers. Released on CD & Digitally.

There’s something also of the work of the late Martyn Bennett and expatriate Scot Paul Mounsey in the way they use spoken word and Gaelic song as part of the fabric of the music, which varies from the catchy synth pop of Beul na h-oidhche to the atmospheric grandeur of Taobh Abhainn.
