Hollow Mountain String Band

Looking for a band for hire in Oban, Argyll, the Highlands or further afield in Scotland? We bring you a lively blend of originals and covers, with a a mix of country, old time, honky tonk, Celtic traditional and western swing that bridges the gap between Scottish and Americana music, along with an electrifying live show that is sure to get the crowd up dancing- it's AmeriCeilidh!

"The music was amazing and so real - everyone thoroughly enjoyed every minute and the band's humour added to the special performance. We'd be happy to welcome them back any time and would highly recommend anyone else booking." Jenn Tapner, Mermaid Leisure Park

 "The musical talent, energetic performances, customer interaction and fantastic array of songs make this band a must to book." Wil Craig, Lord of the Isles bar & restaurant, Craobh Haven.

Foot stompin' Scottish Americana!

Here's what Hollow Mountain Hirers
think about us

Fizzy fun at Benderloch

"The HMSB alway draw the crowds to the Benderloch Palladium with the promise of foot stompin' kick ass Folk Americana. Great heartfelt vocals (and tall tales) from John match splendid string tunesmithing from Rab. Added solid engine room bass rapport and shirt style comes from Nigel whilst balancing the whole circus is Ann with her delicious fiddle licks! If HMSB were a beer we know it would probably be the best (fizzy fun) lager in the world. Book em!" -Campbell Cameron, Victory Hall Gigs, Benderloch

"The HMSB are one of those bands that people get immediately excited about as soon as they hear they will be playing in Lord of the Isles.  The musical talent, energetic performances, customer interaction and fantastic array of songs make this band a must to book.  A firm customer (and staff) favourite, we always look forward to the HMSB arriving." - Wil Craig, Lord of the Isles bar & restaurant, Craobh Haven.
