Hello friends, 

We are The Outside Track, we met over ten years ago in Limerick while the founder members of the band were studying at the University of Limerick. 

We have done a lot of touring since then, all over the world. Over 5000 concerts on 5 continents. Hopefully you have got the chance to see us, and maybe even meet us? Or help us on our way in so many forms. 

For those of you that don't yet know us- We hail from Scotland, Ireland and Canada and blend fiddle, accordion, harp, guitar, flute, whistle, step-dance and vocals with boundless energy and joy.

Over the years we have flown hundreds of flights, traveled many roads, changed some members, grown fringes and beards, packed thousands of cars, eaten many dinners at roadside service stations, applied for many visas, left many belonging in hotels, stood in a million lines, rehearsed in hundreds of hotel rooms, practiced parts in thousands of dressing rooms and had the best time doing it all. 

We have been working on new material for the past few months, and are now ready to unleash it all!! We are set to record in a couple of weeks in Newcastle with the wonderful Ian Stephenson helping us make it all happen. 

We are already planing beautiful album covers with Jenny Ritter and Sara Rankin, and we are so excited to share it all with you. 

BUT...

WE NEED YOU

Making an album is hard, even harder when all your members live on different sides of the world. 

So we would love you all to be involved in our album. From a simple preorder to supporting us and getting yourself some lovely treats. 

From Cds, postcards, bags, concerts, artwork, tune books even recipe books, you can get it all!! If you're brave enough you could even have us come to your house for a house concert for you and your friends. 

Risks and challenges

We are a band who all live in different countries, so any work we do together involves a lot of logistics and a lot of work. Making our new album is no different. We have been rehearsing on the road, planning, working, playing, gigging and organising all the little details that hopefully will make our album one you want to hear!
