About Sheelanagig - Foot Stomping Folk Music

‘High octane stuff... Would liven any party and keep the floor full’ – fRoots

Sheelanagig for over a decade have brought their array of foot-stomping folk tunes to audiences across the globe. A quintet with a well-stocked armoury of stringed instruments – guitar, fiddle, double bass - added with the rhythmic energy of flute and drums and a bagful of joint-jumping tunes, these boys from the South-West England create a real dynamic which is inherent in both their furious dance medleys as well as their interestingly arranged original pieces.

Putting the groove into a selection of traditional and original European Folk music dating from the medieval times to present day, it’s difficult – nay, impossible – for your limbs to remain stationary when you’re within earshot of them in full flight. The fact that they often play with a knowing wink shouldn’t obscure their impeccable technique, and outstanding musicianship that raises the roof in every place they play.

2018 sees an exciting brand new line up including flautist Luke Phillips-Griffiths fresh from the Newcastle Folk Music circuit, and Alex Bishop - acclaimed folk guitarist and luthier, who both bring an exciting new direction and energy to the groups much loved sound. Busying themselves this year they have already toured France, Switzerland and Australia as well as busy summer festival season. They now are ready to embark on a UK tour this November this time travelling with the fantastic BBC Young Folk Nominees “The Drystones” as support.

Sheelanagig are: Aaron Catlow – Violin, Luke Phillips – Flute, Alex Bishop – Guitar, Jon Short - Double Bass, John Blakeley - Drums

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Sheelanagig - Foot Stomping Folk Music are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
