Code-76ACD-Celtic-Melbourne

Described as a rolling thunder of Celtic fury and joy ,the band blend traditional influences from Ireland, Scotland, Brittany and Galicia into original compositions that combine knife-edge satire, biting political and social commentary and a look at contemporary Australian life from the gutter upwards. Their high energy explosive music blasts right through polite sensitivities to the dark side of the human condition, grabs it by the short and curlies and squeezes it to within an inch of its life. They are renowned across the nation for their combustible, tasteful and muscular performances. As one of the few Australian-based Celtic ensembles that performs decent Cornish repertoire (in addition to their Irish, Scottish, Breton, contemporary original and cover tunes), their music has a depth and breadth rarely experienced in the local Celtic scene. Ranging from poignant to infectious, from complex to succinct, this is an ensemble with the range and musicality to suit any audience, old and young alike. They have a freshness, vibrancy and energy that has rarely been seen in the Australian Celtic-based scene: a well-rounded and diverse ensemble grounded in a traditional art form which is also not afraid to be spontaneous and creative.
