The Chaplins are a rootsy/Americana band based in Glasgow, Scotland. They are the 2014 winners of The Danny Kyle Stage at Celtic Connections.

Shortly after The Chaplins formed in 2012 they were asked to join the much-loved Runrig on their Re-Wired tour which saw them playing to audiences in sold out concert halls and arenas across the UK and Europe. The Chaplins won the hearts of many thousands and were Runrig's most successful support act to date, selling out of their debut EP 'Introducing The Chaplins'. Since then they have been touring extensively around the UK and developing a fast growing fan base.

The band members are accomplished musicians in their own right who together as a unit create a distinctive sound with soaring harmonies and foot stomping music. Seeing them perform live is an event you'll never forget. Their timeless feel will appeal to all - eight or eighty you will find yourself mesmerised by this outstanding band.

These musicians have shared stages with a good many legends including Albert Lee, Eddi Reader and Bluegrass master, Roland White. With influences ranging from Emmylou Harris to Stevie Wonder, Alison Krauss to Ray LaMontagne, The Chaplins are strong believers that a good song is a good song no matter what the genre.
