Blues, Folk, Country, Oldies and Rock 'n Roll from the Isle of Man!
Why stationary ? Some say that they don't travel, and indeed they originally performed in "The Mitre", the oldest pub on the Isle of Man, just across the water from their "gaelic cousins" in Ireland and Scotland. Despite the name the band were often to be seen and heard far away from their island home and invariably having a good time. Nowadays concerts are only occasional as two band members live abroad, but fans both old and new remain loyal.
The "Folk & Blues" CD is a live recording of an open air peformance near Zurich, Switzerland in 2003.
The Isle of Man? Where's that ? - Isn't it an English Island ? No !!!!! Absolutely not ! The Island is a unique self-governing kingdom with a population of around 77,000 which belongs to neither the UK nor the European Union. It is a crown dependency. It has its own parliament (called Tynwald), laws, traditions, culture, cuisine and postage stamps. To the tourist it is known for the agreeable and relaxed pace of life, the same virtues appreciated by the Gaelic cousins just across the water in Ireland and Scotland.
