Verified profile

We have performed at ceilidhs for many a year and have a wide repertoire of music from different countries . The biggest part is Scottish and Irish music but we can include some French Italian Israel or American styles if required. We operate normally as a two piece with fiddle and accordion but we also add drums if necessary. We are fully equipped to handle most function sizes and rarely encounter any problems.
