Two years back, Mikey Kenney, fiddler in the Liverpool Céilí band and Saltcutters frontman, started discussing a cross-the-sea band with fellow Saltcutter Evelyn Broderick and Co. Down piper Sean Donnelly along with a few others. The idea was to form a traditional big band that would regularly cross the Irish Sea to meet and perform.... Consisting of a brilliant line up of professional trad musicians from numerous established acts, here is the result;
Mikey Kenney (fiddle), Maureen Walker (fiddle), Susie Howlin (flute), Sean Donnelly (uilleann pipes), Michael Metcalfe (drums), Ciara Owes (tenor banjo), Damon Kilcawley (mandolin), Charlie McKeon (guitar), Harriet Bartlett (accordion).
