Sublime and exhilarating arrangements of the old Irish traditional songs, with influences of rock, pop, jazz, electronica and not a trace of gimmickry. This is a band that take traditional Irish music and song and, in the words of the The Telegraph, turn it into ‘Folk-Pop that is Irish music for the 21st Century.’
