Their original music is their true passion. Their debut album “Sociable!” released in May 2015, and hit #4 nationally on community/college radio stations, including #1 positions on weekly Top 30 and folk charts. Their sophomore album “Far From Shore” released July 2018 and received play on CBC stations around Canada, and again appeared on several college/community Top 30 and folk charts. During the Covid Pandemic, they released a collection of covers recorded during a live-stream event on their third album affectionately titled “LIVE”. (Albums are available for purchase through bandcamp, at live shows, and at most digital retailers).
They feature a dynamic fiddle performance with Bexy Ashworth and Liam McGlashon, the talented multi-instrumentalist/luthier Matti Palonen on tin whistle and double-bass (Matti also plays harp, kantele, mandolin, bandura, cello and jouhikko), Scot Allan on bodhrán (Scot also plays drums and other percussion), and Stephen Lamb on guitar and lead vocals. Best described as ‘engaging Celtic folk/rock’, they combine the sound of traditional folk instruments with a passionate intensity during fiddle tunes and sing-a-long pub rousers, and when the mood shifts to folk-style story-telling songs, the haunting melodies and warm vocals created by these musicians would ‘bring a tear to a glass-eye’.
They have been featured on 67 Music’s ‘The Celtic Music Journal’, been interviewed in Irish Music Magazine and appeared on several episodes of The Irish and Celtic Music Podcast. With their rendition of classic Celtic and east coast covers, traditional fiddle tunes, and a variety of original tunes, they often invite the audience to participate in a fun, energetic stage show that can be enjoyed by all.
