Saor Patrol-Scottish Medieval Rock
(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 Tribal Experience'.

Those that have heard and experienced SAOR PATROL live never to forget the visual image of their live experience.The energy they share with their audience during a performance, with their vibrant pipe tunes and drum rhythms that please and excite many a crowd from all walks of life.
Like the music of Saor Patrol, Bluegrass, Rockabilly, and as many other sounds have evolved from traditional Scottish and Irish music over the centuries, this is their contribution!!

Still holding onto their unique sound and style they continue to combine old musical Celtic roots with the new.
Bagpies, Drums and Electric Guitar provide a musical power that moves the listener.
Their sound is Scottish Medieval Rock and it delivers!

Their story is unlike any other.

Saor Patrol have all their music available as MP3 Files now as well as their fast growing back catalogue of CD's, DVD & merchandise

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.

Saor Patrol have performed at festivals throughout the UK, Europe, Asia and USA and are available for bookings. You can book them for a unique Scottish Celtic cultural experience for your Music Festivals, Brand Launches, Private weddings, Corporate and Public Events, Private Functions, Weddings, Ceilidhs, Gatherings, internationally bringing a taste of Scottish tradition with a difference to any event.

There is more to the band members of Saor Patrol than meets the eye, they are a band for a more complicated reason, which they do not always get the opportunity to convey to their audience. They travel and perform to allow them to realise an equally fantastic goal.They are all volunteers of   The Clanranald Trust for Scotland, a recognised Scottish Charity, whose primary aim is the promotion of Scottish Cultural and Heritage through Entertainment and Education.

While visiting some countries they provide talks on their culture as an educational benefit to youths and adults alike who may have never encountered the Scots close up and in person.
They are also members of Combat International a recognised organisation that supplies trained combat crews and advisors to the Film and TV industry Internationally.

Although the band is separate from the Trust, one heavily promotes each other at all times, see Clanranald Trust for Scotland
