Energetic live acoustic folk band based in Münster, Germany. Songs and tunes inspired by the folk music of Ireland, Scotland and England, with a passion and authenticity born out of years of live performing. Traditional folk instruments paired with rich vocals and both original and classic songs and tunes have given many audiences around North Rhine-Westphalia and the Münsterland an unforgetttable evening.
A tight group of musicians from in and around Münster and Werne an der Lippe, 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 not forgetting of course St Patrick's Day! 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 banjo, 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.
