With a host of rebel rousing folk songs and instrumentals the band modernise traditional folk material with their own touch and have since excited audiences with their artillery of loud, boisterous, foot stomping live sets. The band members have a wealth of other musical experience between them with brothers David and James’s involvement with Eliza Carthy and Norma Waterson, Jim Moray and many more.
