Initially formed as a three-piece by Calum and Rory Macdonald with Blair Douglas in 1973 to play at wedding receptions, Runrig quickly developed a unique Celtic sound, integrating Highlands folk music with the anthemic rock of bands like U2, Big Country and Simple Minds. The first of many line-up changes occurred with the departure of Blair Douglas in 1974, with guitarist Malcolm Jones, drummer Iain Bayne, keyboard players Richard Cherns and Peter Wishart and guitarist and singer Donnie Munro among those recruited along the way.
They pioneered Gaelic-language songs with their 1978 debut album 'Play Gaelic', but didn't achieve a national breakthrough until the 1988 album 'The Cutter & The Clan', their first major label release. The band soon established a fervent following with their explosive stage shows as successful albums 'Searchlight' (1989), 'The Big Wheel' (1991), 'Amazing Things' (1993) and 'Mara' (1995) followed. By 1997, Munro quit to pursue a career in politics - a path also followed in 2001 by Peter Wishart, who became a Scottish National Party MP - with Canadian Bruce Guthro taking over as frontman and Brian Hurran joining on the keyboard and accordion.
Subsequent releases include 'In Search of Angels' (1999), 'The Stamping Ground' (2001), 'Proterra' (2003) with Paul Mounsey and 'Everything You See' (2007). In 2016, the band released their final studio album, 'The Story', which reached number 26 on the UK Albums Chart and was supported by a European tour.
In 2017, Runrig announced that they would disband after a 45-year musical career. Their final tour, named The Final Mile, ended with a sell-out performance called The Last Dance in 2018. The live performance was released on DVD and Blu-ray in August 2019.
