Capercaillie are a Scottish folk band, founded in the 1980s by Donald Shaw and fronted by Karen Matheson. Capercaillie's perform traditional Gaelic songs and tunes, as well as contemporary English language songs and tunes. The group adapts traditional Gaelic music and traditional lyrics with modern production techniques with instruments such as electric guitar or bass and rarely synthesisers or drum machines. They have seen four of their albums placed in the UK Albums Chart, and continue to perform and record to the present day.
