Piers Adams blows Adam Summerhayes scrapes
Murray Grainger bellows Malcolm Creese twangs Cormac Byrne bangs

Celtic Gypsy Klezmer
folk in a joyously wild maverick mix!

An irresistible blend of exotic eastern European and Celtic folk roots including Niel Gow’s warm and beautiful ‘Lament’; two ancient Slovakian melodies; one of the most beloved Celtic melodies (‘Will You Go Lassie Go’ or ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’) – all interspersed with wild gypsy dances. This explosive band combines diabolical fiddle virtuosity from international star Adam Summerhayes; outrageous brilliance from world number one recorder genius, Piers Adams; horrifying high-ABV insanity from accordion master, Murray Grainger; positively feverish power from bass legend, Malcolm Creese; and dazzling bodhran playing from king of folk percussion, Cormac Byrne. Winners of the Buxton Festival Fringe Small Ensemble Award 2017

“The Buxton audience loved the Dodo Street Band for the musicianship, the excitement
and the joy in their playing.”
Keith Savage, Chair, Buxton Festival Fringe.
