There are five main members of the band. Sometimes we ask one of our experienced friends to step in and help if someone is not available for a particular date. The usual band line-up is fiddle & flute, backed by guitar, bouzouki, percussion (djembe, bongos, snare) and vocals. This line-up may vary slightly depending on players’ availability, but we always feature a core of two lead musicians with the same backing section and a caller.
Our vocals don’t interrupt the dancing, they drive it on! Gaelic port à beul (“mouth music”) is meant uniquely for dancing, and we’ll surprise you with short bursts in the middle of some of our sets.
Our regular line-up consists of:
- Cathy: fiddle
- Gordon: flute, whistle
- Kenny: bouzouki, guitar
- Kirsteen: caller, vocals, percussion
- Michel: vocals, percussion, guitar
Others who appear with us from time to time include:
- Andy: caller, percussion
- Dianne: caller
- Rebecca: flute
- Kathryn: fiddle
- Tim: fiddle
- Duncan: uilleann pipes, whistles
- Susan: button accordion
