Album Notes
Heavy Medieval Pipes & Drums since 1541


The CRAIC is a 4-piece, themed drama & musical act using heavy percussions and medieval bagpipes. Many various styles of drumming and percussions compliment haunting "old style" pipes and vocals. The CRAIC is modeled after traditional medieval / renaissance theater and music yet also incorporates percussion techniques of Japanese Taiko, West African Djembe and Australian Aboriginal. The piping is
modeled after traditional central European medieval styles, yet with a modern intense approach similar to that of a rock band.

The CRAIC also uses various pots n pans and swords n daggers as alternative percussion instruments. Full skits are performed using these "instruments" in a heavy percussive and tribal way. The CRAIC has been likened to a medieval versions of STOMP and Blue Man Group.

The CRAIC has a themed background and uses it as a base for every show. Below is the backstory of how The CRAIC came together. Enjoy!!!


One day a few musicians, who had fallen on some very hard times due to the wars that had been ravaging their homeland, happened upon each other on an abondoned battlefield.

Being musicians, they, of course, picked up anything they could & began to jam. Pots and pans from the supply wagon had been remade into a drum set, old war drums, found in enough shape to still have a huge BOOM, were uprighted, & remnants of bagpipes, found, put together & and played to bring in the melody. The musicians loved the good CRAIC they had brought to each other and decided together: "We shall take
these old, broken instruments of war, and make them instruments of
CRAIC!" And that is just what they did..
