Gigging again - Loughton Folk Club, 31st March 2016

It was great to be back out ‘gigging’ again and it was a real treat to start our 2016 commitments at the lovely Loughton Folk Club. We have visited the club on a number of occasions before and have always had the finest of welcomes. This evening was no exception.

Now run by Gary James, Steve O’Donoghue and a team of committed volunteers, the club takes place in a very pleasant, nicely-sized, room with good acoustics above the Loughton Club. The club has an intimate and involved air about it.

A special event in Ely, 5th September 2015

This was our first concert after the summer holidays and, after some hard work at rehearsals, we hit the road on a sunny Saturday afternoon for a special concert in Ely. We had been invited to play for attendees at a conference organised by prestigious The Chartered Institute of Linguists. A visiting group of linguists from Germany had expressed a specific interest in hearing more about Gaelic and, with others, we helped provide a musical exploration of songs and tunes drawn from across the Celtic world.
