Four-piece playing and singing Irish traditional music, Bluegrass. Vocals, guitar, flute, harmonica, uilleann pipes, banjo, bodhran.

WHO ARE THE HOUSE DEVILS? MAT WALKLATE Mat Walklate is an accomplished harmonica and flute player who is as much at home playing Irish traditional music as he is the blues. (He won the British Blues Harmonica Championship when he was only twenty-one). As well as being a master of the harmonica, Mat is also a fine singer and uilleann piper. MATT FAHEY Matt Fahey is a superb singer, one of the best interpreters of traditional song on these shores and a skilled, dynamic guitar player, equally adept at accompanying vocals and instrumental music. JONNY HULME Jonny is one of the best bluegrass banjo players this country has ever produced and he's also a dab hand at playing Irish traditional music as well. His spirited, soulful picking gives a great lift to the music. LASZLO PALKO Laszlo is a brilliant percussionist , equally adept on bodhran, cajon, congas and a host of other instruments. Drawing on a huge range of influences, from Irish traditional music to Brazilian Samba, he conveys an irresistible drive and energy to everything he plays on!

Brilliant sound! Really went with the mood and flow of our special evening. They managed to get to our remote location and set up their PA on time. They even helped us sort our first dance music when things were going pear shaped! Don't think twice, 10/10 would book again. 🤙

Mat and the band were great. Everyone really enjoyed the music and dancing and they were happy to stand back when my dad took the stage for one of his very long jokes. Thanks
