Highland Way

Playing everything from High Energy Festivals to Performing Arts Theaters, from Scotland to Nova Scotia, Ireland to California, Highland Way are uncompromising professionals. These seasoned studio session musicians bring that same polished energy to stages around the world. With their huge repertoire they know how to tailor their performance to the audience. A native Scot with his Glasgow accent, Brian Caldwell is well known for his wonderful ability to charm any crowd while his energetic and driving rhythm guitar blends flawlessly with the rest of the band.

Highland Way

Joining Brian are Paul Graham Castellanos – on fiddle, mandolin, guitar, banjo, Sharon Whyte – on accordion and keyboards, Bob Sale – on percussion and drums, Glen Fisher – on bass, and master of guitars Jim Soldi. Highlighting Celtic music from Scotland and Ireland, with originals and the occasional popular cover, Highland Way create the ultimate show.
