They have left our audiences dazzled and delighted with their wonderfully skilled playing and their great sprit on stage. They play a mix of Celtic and folk music with élan using guitar, bouzouki, mandolin, accordions and fiddle.
The opening act is Blue Rambler (Don Gowan, Murray Little & George Campbell). Blue Rambler plays blues and swing tempered with a bit of folk and old country songs. Read more »

Rob decided to say them with rich melodies and lyrics delivered in a voice haunting in its simplicity. Read more »
