SEEKING

Band to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Violin, Fiddle.

ABOUT

We moved to North Devon in March 2018 and would very much like to meet up with musicians, possibly with a view to being able to join/form an acoustic band focused on playing energetic folk-based, or folk-rock music. We have previously played mainly songs from the Irish tradition, e.g. The Dubliners, The Chieftains, and more modern renditions such as The Pogues and The Saw Doctors.

My wife plays whistles and bodhran (but not at the same time...) while I am happy to play mandolin, Irish banjo and guitar. We both sing a bit.

All offers and suggestions welcome!

Love to hear from you if you are slightly interested, or can give us ideas of where to go.......
