Traditional folk instruments paired with rich vocals and both original and traditional songs and tunes have given many audiences aound North Rhine-Westphalia an unforgetttable evening.

About Us


A tight group of musicians from in and around Münster, Germany, we play traditional Irish, Scottish, English and American folk songs and tunes as well as many of our own originals in pubs and bars, and at private parties, weddings and town festivals. Coming from Werne, Selm and of course Münster, and with one Englishman too we have years of experience playing to all kinds of audiences.

We build our exciting sound with traditional instruments including concertina, wooden flutes and whistles, guitar and bodhran as well as the amazing sound of the not-yet-traditional "Geyerleier" (look it up!) all topped with great singing and harmonies.
