Scotland's X-Factor Finalist Duo Will Add that X-Factor to Any Event.
The Scott pop duo of Craig and Brian MacDonald have taken the Scottish music scene by storm, since they burst into the public eye in 2006 as finalists in the monster British television show, X Factor.
In the ensuing two years, the MacDonald Bros have achieved spectacular success, with their first two albums, produced by former Bay City Roller Stuart 'Woody' Wood, rocketing into the charts at number one and number two respectively. In fact, their self titled debut recording made pop history as the first album on a Scottish independent label to land at number one on the Scottish charts.
Born and raised in Ayr, Scotland, this sibling duo have been harmonizing since they could walk, with their musical father initiating their passion with home recordings whilst still toddlers. At six and seven years of age the lads were off to music classes in the traditional Scottish instruments of accordion and fiddle. Ten years of honing their instrumental chops ensued, with both lads winning a clutch of awards, on the way to becoming musical virtuosos Brian on accordion and Craig on fiddle.
The pace has been relentless for the MacDonald Bros, with the release of the first two albums, a limited edition third album and now their latest album 'Young Celts', which hit the Scottish market on 12th October 08 securing top 10 spot (number 8) in the Scottish album charts. Add to this two headlining tours of Scotland and a pair of UK tours in support of Westlife and you have an incredible past two years of frenetic activity.
