For over a decade Sheelanagig have brought their array of foot-stomping folk tunes to audiences across the globe.
This quintet have a well-stocked armoury of stringed instruments – guitar, fiddle, double bass – to which they add the rhythmic energy of flute and drums and a bagful of joint-jumping tunes. These boys from the South-West England create a real dynamic, inherent in their furious dance medleys as well as their creatively arranged original pieces.
Supported by The Drystones
The Drystones are an award winning young (just 21) lively folk duo from Priddy in Somerset playing violin, guitar and whistle, who have made a big splash since they formed in July 11. They play a mix of their own tunes and arrangements of folk tunes given drive, beat and energy.
