The audience can expect to hear Celtic folk music from Ireland, Scotland, England, and Brittany, as well as, American and World music with ties to Celtic folk music, either musically or historically. Their wide spectrum of musical styles ranges from beautiful waltzes to exciting jigs and reels. The band’s music ranges from slow and hauntingly beautiful melodies to faster-paced and energetic pieces which will get the toes tapping.
