Fiddles, guitar, accordion, bagpipes and step dancing explode into life

 

This international award winning band from Wales are back on the road with their infectious rhythms and high energy routines to celebrate 10 years since the release of their first album with a brand new compilation recording called Deg or 10. The album also includes some new tracks specially specially recorded for the CD. They come with accordion, harp, guitar, fiddles and Welsh bagpipes (!) along with a virtuoso performance from a champion step dancer. 

A fresh and vibrant sound with a pounding beat set against the backdrop of old traditions. Songs include the legend of Wales’ very own fairy realm with a tale of magic, myth and mischief along with some of the most beautiful and haunting melodies. 

 

They have introduced a new generation to Welsh music – and continue to do so as they tour Europe, North America, Australia and Asia. 

 

‘.....a diverse ride between giddy Welsh reeling, healthy acoustic folk-pop with upfront attitude and brashness of youth.” FROOTS

 

“…there’s nowt as dear as folk – especially when played with the grace, daring and sheer joy this multi- instrumental five-piece bring to a winning selection of reels, jigs and hornpipes”

THE MIRROR

 

“Folk just got a kick up of the Noughties... ..stunning use of instrumentation, gorgeously crafted songs, sprightly foot-tappers, verve and raw excitement”
