Album Notes
The band started in 2007 and has gone from strength to strength. Now on a third album, the Trip to Exeter shows great developments from the original themes. Lead track The Rocky Road to Dublin is a must at parties (that’s if you like wild parties..). Follow that up with the Russian style of ‘Trip to Exeter’ and then the lilting ‘Spancil Hill’. Time of another drink I think. The band now headline a selection of festivals in the summer - check out the you tube videos. In the rhythm section there is the wild and enigmatic Bodhran playing of James King, complimented with his gravel voice and percussion. On the top line is premier fiddle player Mac Moulton who plunges from Irish set dances into the jazz style of Stephan Grappelli with surprising ease. At the centre of the band is 12 string guitarist, John Fitzsimons. His playing is a startling combination of cross rhythms/ jazz chords and counter melodies that produce completely original arrangements of the songs. With a background on the London music scene he brings many diverse influences to the band. Three members of the band sing (and make strange noises), creating rich vocal patterns and harmonies.
