Wolfstone

Over the course of nine years, Wolfstone dragged Scottish music -- sometimes kicking and screaming, but always quite loudly -- into the world of rock. They were loud and proud and transferred Seattle's grunge ethic from the Pacific Northwest to the Highlands, applying it to both traditional and their original music. It all began when fiddler Duncan Chisholm put together a ceilidh band to play dances in the Highlands, adding pipes and bass and drums into the mix -- a combination that was well-received. Along with original bassist David Foster, Chisholm brought in Stuart Eaglesham on guitars, his brother Struan Eaglesham on keyboards, and the guitarist/songwriter Ivan Drever to round out the lineup.

The group's 1991 debut, Unleashed, proved to be the biggest seller ever for tiny Iona Records, garnering the band a silver disc (two earlier collections, Wolfstone I and Wolfstone II, circulated once the band became famous. However, they distanced themselves from the material, recorded in their very formative stages). A year later they issued The Chase and took their more developed sound international, with a more refined mix of blazing instrumentals grounded by the heavy rhythm section and Drever's songs, including "The Prophet" and "Tinnie Run." They played around Europe and made their first foray to America, a place they'd visit several times over the next few years. Wolfstone: Captured Alive Video, a video of their live show from the period, illustrates the power of their performances -- not too subtle, but able to get to the masses.

1994 brought two U.S. releases, Wolfstone and the massive Year of the Dog, which had plenty of crunch on songs like "The Sea King." It also introduced two new members, Wayne MacKenzie on bass, and Steve Saint on pipes. It made them into even more of a rock band, and producer Phil Cunningham let the guitars ring loud and distorted. The Half Tail, two years later, had a richer, slicker sound, with one utter standout piece, "Bonnie Ship the Diamond." It put a new stamp on Scots music. Unfortunately, the stamp peeled just a year later, thanks in large part to problems with the record company and management squabbles. However, that was far from the end of the story. Drever and Chisholm worked together, and 1998 and 1999 both brought new Wolfstone albums, This Strange Place and Seven (the first reportedly a contract-filler), following on from a best-of set. While the band has played occasional shows since, they've not gotten back together. ~ Chris Nickson

I saw them at Strawberry Music Festival near Yosemite and loved them! I then got to see them at a pub in Portland, Oregon and had fun being so close to them and their lively and wonderful music.

Since I first discovered them in 1992 till now, I consider them pioneers in the development of Celtic rock music. Still my favorite in Celtic Rock.

The band bio is completely wrong - the boys had a bit of a break years ago, and Ivan Drever is missed, but they are still recording and touring. Duncan, Stuart, and Stevie provide consistency and backbone. New blood comes and goes, changing the sound a bit, but it always has Duncan's fiddle, and Stevie wasn't the first piper, but he started very early.

There have been at least 9 albums, another is due out in 2011, and Pandora don't have Almost an Island or Not Enough Shouting, which is a sin.

Anyone else feel that a band named "Wolfstone" sounds like it should be German metal?

Great music, but they chose an odd name for the sound.

Excellent band,....too bad they lost their way squabbling with idiot management/r e c o r d company!

Great combo of rock and celtic instruments: "bagpipe rock." Loved "Pick of the Litter," "Seven," and "Almost an Island." Their newest, "Terra Firma" loses a lot of the celtic flavor. Hope they change it back.

This bio is so out of date! Having shared the stage with Wolfstone in August of 2006 in Springfield, IL, they smoked the place. Check out their website, these guys are world travelers and are on the road a lot. Fine musicians and a bunch of really nice guys, to boot (haven't met their new guitarist, Ross Hamilton was with them when I was fortunate enough to share the billing) it's always a treat listening to Wolfstone...
