In their surprisingly engaging and often hilarious show, they perform a truly unique high-octane blend of folk music from around the world – perfectly formed & embellished with a foot stomping accordion and mind-boggling array of exotic percussion (with some Quebecois foot percussion & dancing thrown in for good measure too!).

Taking the audience on a voyage across the globe with their varied material, they perform a hugely engaging, entertaining and truly unique blend of home-grown tunes mixed with British, Nordic and European folk music, perfectly formed & embellished with the driving accordion and a dazzling array of exotic percussion. Accordionist Sam Pirt & Percussionist Gary Hammond both have extensive backgrounds in music – having been part of and performed alongside legendary acts such as The Beautiful South, Nina Simone, The Dubliners & Sharon Shannon, their playing is still very much in high demand.
