Sheelanagig

Music |
1st December 2023

Doors 8pm | Tickets £16.50 | Support Bonfire Radicals | Malt Room Standing

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

Putting the groove into a selection of traditional and original European Folk music, dating from medieval times to the 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.

Sheelanagig has recently toured France, Switzerland and Australia, as well as remaining a firm fixture in the UK festival season, they have also featured on a full live session on Mark Radcliffe’s BBC Radio 2 Folk Show.
