The band has been together for 3 years. We play primarily traditional irish music with a line up of fiddle, flute, melodeon,guitar , + other acoustic instruments + vocals + sean nos (old style irish dance). We do play some Bretton & Scots music & sings folk songs from the UK, Ireland & Scotland.
We can play the well know Irish pub type songs in addition but they are not part of our regular repertoire.
On Sunday Feb 14 2016 they featured on BBC Radio Lancashire Folk Show, The Drift, playing live. The band played live on the BBC Leeds folk show on Sun 5th March 2017.
Chris - fiddle, octave mandola, vocal
Steve - acoustic guitar, tenor gtr, mandolin, bodhran, vocal
Paddy - melodeon, vocals, sean nos dance
Tom - flute, whistles
Barry - sound & caller for ceilis
We occasionally add double bass but would charge more to cover that.
We have excellent PA gear with a Bose 802 speaker system, digital desk etc.
We donot normally use any lighting system, but do have some minimal lighting available if it were needed. Barry our soundman/caller also does PA hire etc so has a huge array of gear available.
