Since coming together in 2006, this dynamic group has firmly established themselves as one of Melbourne’s premier Celtic/Folk bands. Although their roots are based in traditional Irish music, they enjoy and engage with many other styles and genres. Singing in Ireland’s ancient Gaelic language and in English, they’re harmonies soar to the heavens and the group are ever evolving, expanding on their world music component. With the addition of their own material, songs and tunes, they strive to bring something unique and most importantly, entertaining, to every performance.
