Performance Background

The band was first conceived in March 1995, shortly after Howard and Ian's first appearance with the Chieftains. The idea of the band gelled after a performance at McCabe's in Santa Monica a few months later. The band's popularity grew quickly, and Highland Sun was ranked one of the top 100 bands in the DiscMakers Music World Series in the Fall of 1996

Since then the band has performed all around Southern and Central California, appearing on TV and in a number of independent films. Things slowed down in 1999-2000 as Howard focused on his newly started software company, Symas Corp., but with growing success there the band is once again moving forward. Notable recent appearances include the Getty Center (with Everything Celtic) in June 2003 and the Hollywood Bowl in July 2003 and August 2005.
