It has mixed the old songs and music with a new self-penned repertoire, all played on ancient and modern instruments including: bagpipes, fiddle, synthesizer, guitar, flutes, bodhran and accordion. The band has performed in Germany, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Holland, Syria, Jordan, India, Sri Lanka, Egypt, U.S.A., Canada, Uzbekistan, China and the U.K., breaking down barriers and pioneering many new directions which others have followed. Angry, joyful, raucous, contemplative, their music is most importantly — accessible to all.
