Enter the Haggis to bring the sound of Toronto rock music

| 29 Jan 2014 | 02:04

Toronto roots rock band, Enter the Haggis will perform at the Newton Theatre on Saturday, March 29 at 8 p.m.

Enter The Haggis latest release, "The Modest Revolution" was inspired entirely by the content of one Canadian newspaper, and funded entirely through the contributions of loyal fans.

Seven albums and a decade plus on the road have seen Enter The Haggis evolve from a wildly popular local band to established international touring act, with a sound that lies somewhere between the fiercely creative and contemporary soundscapes of Radiohead, and the heartfelt story telling and infectious grooves of The Band.

It's this uncompromising commitment to their music and fans that has seen the band garner top 10 charting positions on Billboard, Amazon, and iTunes; major television appearances such as A&E's Breakfast with the Arts and Live with Regis and Kelly; and their own PBS special.

The band consists of Brian Buchanan (Vocals, Fiddle, Keyboards, Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar), Craig Downie (Vocals, Highland Bagpipes, Trumpet, Harmonica, Whistle, Acoustic Guitar, Bells), Trevor Lewington (Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Octave Mandolin, Keyboards), Mark Abraham (Bass Guitar, Vocals) and Bruce McCarthy (Drums, Percussion).

Tickets for Enter the Haggis are $29 for premium seating, $24 for orchestra and $19 for balcony. Purchase tickets by visiting www.thenewtontheatre.com or contact the box office at 973-383-3700.

The historic Newton Theatre is located at 234 Spring Street in Newton.
