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 Dortmund, 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, mandolin, wooden flutes and whistles, guitar and bhodran as well as the not-yet-traditional "Geyerleier" (look it up!) all topped with great singing and harmonies.
