Bringing Irish music back to the Capital City
Posted: Tue Jun 6, 2017 2:32 pm
Hi I'm really passionate about Irish-celtic music and would love to join or form a new Irish-celtic band.I used to play bass for Shanakie performing at venues all across the lower north island. I have just returned from Ireland where I watched bands perform in Dublin City and Galway City. My daughtet represented NZ in the world Irish dancing championships in Dublin. So I'm just putting it out there. Expressions of interest for a band playing contemporary Irish-Celtic fusion rock, Irish ballads,and traditional music. This would be 100% irish-celtic aand would be a very long project to be ready for gigging. Line up would be eg percussion-bohdran, bass, fiddle, mandolin, piano-harpsichord, tin whistle,guitar: maybe im just dreaming here, im pretty sure there are hardly any irish bands around now: when I was playing last there were heaps. May I take this opportunity to pay my respects to Alex Cormack who formed Shanakie. RIP Alex. Cheers ! Steve Salzano

Hi,

I would like to know more about your project.I have been singing Irish ballads
and many others since I was a child such as Altan, Solas, Deanta. I used to sing and play on the recorder, violin in an Irish band and now I would like to find musicians to play.
Could you tell me more about what would you like to do?

Thanks,
E.

Hi Steve,
My name's Rowan. I can sing, and play bass, trumpet, electric guitar and recorders. I'm pretty inexperienced in authentic Irish music, but am pretty into folk-rock groups like Steeleye Span, Fairport, and Jethro Tull, as well as Irish-punk stuff like Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly. I'd lean more towards the high-energy-originals-end of the repertoire spectrum. Let me know if you want to get in touch. No dramas if not.

Hey

Not sure if I'd be needed since it wasn't listed but I'm banjo player that would be keen.
Let me know.

Cheers
