Tunes We Play

We play our own arrangements of music old and new from the British Isles, Europe, and beyond: jigs (of course), slip jigs, reels, ballads and songs, with klezmer, ska and swing jumping into the set from time to time. In the traditional session style we often join different tunes together to make up a set. Some tune sets are traditional associations and you will hear many bands and musicians play them this way.

Like most bands, we work on our repertoire constantly. Having only played together for a few years we are still developing our music and as a result tunes come and go. Our current gig playlist is below. We have not listed our ceilidh tunes as there are too many although some are included in our current gig list. Please take a look at our influences page for those we would like to thank for their inspiration and links to their websites or further information. We also owe a debt of gratitude to The Session website which is a wonderful rich source of tunes and information for all folk musicians and lovers of folk music.
