The Brigadoons-Glengarry Celtic

The Brigadoons

Formed in 1971 by Rob Taylor, The Brigadoons have, for over thirty years, promoted the Celtic music so popular in Glengarry. Over those many years the band has had many members who epitomized the vast talent present in our county. The original band consisted of Bob Burnie, Gaye Leroux, Jamie Wood, Brian MacDonell and of course, the founder, Rob himself. Many of these musicians went on to other careers in music and are still playing in the area.

Their peppy brand of Celtic music was instantly embraced by the public, young and old. Whether they played to the crowd at the Atlantic Hotel or for a dance at the Bonnie Glen, they played to full houses and kept the floor full all night. Members changed through the years, but the band's following continued to grow. Over the years, different entertainers added their talents to the band. Artists such as Rick Linke, Gerry Lefave, David Wright, Paddy Kelly and Shelley Downing played with the band; today the Brigadoons consist of Rob Taylor, Denis Carr, Jack Smith, Luane Doyle and Bonita Leblanc.
