Description

This Irish Ceili and Concert band made their debut at Tegingl Festival of Hidden Folk in August 2010 to great acclaim. They play Irish traditional music for concerts and ceilis. They also have a shared love of the music of Brittany and play tunes from all over the British Isles.

Becky (Uileann Piper) and Frances (Accordionist) met at the first BBC Radio 2 Young Tradition Award and along with Pat (bouzouki), who is one of the most sought after accompanists, these extremely accomplished musicians have been playing together in music sessions and for functions in and around Manchester and Northern England for several years. They all share a deep love for the Irish traditions which is very clear in their abilities and their attention to detail.

For Ceilis (Ceilidhs) the band are augmented by their caller (thus becoming a 4 piece line-up) to guide even the most apprehensive through the moves of the traditional Irish Ceili dances. (please note - the band can also perform for Irish Set Dancing)
