"High octane stuff…Would liven any party and keep the floor full" – fRoots

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

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

"A completely top night out." – Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2

"The musicianship is tight and intense" – Songlines
