We perform a mix of Scottish and Irish songs on a variety of instruments, usually including the octave mandolin and the bodhran (Irish drum) as well as our usual fiddle-flute-guitars-vocals.
We have performed for St. Patrick’s Day events, Samhuinn, and have presented a “Burns Night” concert in keeping with the worldwide celebration of Scotland’s Robert Burns on January 25.
