Who we are and what we play

We are a group of muscians who meet to play traditional and contemporary folk music from around the world. The instruments we play include guitars, mandolins, bouzouki, fiddles, accordians, melodians, concertinas, recorders, flutes, whistles, bodhrans and cellos. We meet regularly to play (for dates see rehearsals page) and at garden parties and other events over the summer.
