About this Act

This amazing band have the experience and musical ability to create the perfect high-energy Ceilidh. The band's caller has a friendly and humorous style, the instructions are quick and clear so everyone can be up and dancing and having a great time.

Using many traditional tunes the band have a unique way of arranging and performing them in a very modern style. This band do not use backing tracks, the music is 100% live.

They produce a very full sound as three musicians. The violin takes the lead whilst the accordionist's right keyboard plays chords and harmony parts. The accordionist's left hand buttons are bass boosted to give a rich deep sound. The guitar blends with both instruments adding exciting and creative improvisations. Also the dynamic use of live midi interface on the guitar adding brass arrangements, flute lead and harmony parts as well as other instruments to the overall sound. The music really comes alive.
