Barleyshakes - Tuesday 26th February
Brewed in Ireland and distilled in Australia, the Barleyshakes are a Celtic band with world music influences who combine intense energy, beautiful harmony and driving dance rhythms in their live performances. That the Barleyshakes manage to hold hands with the tradition of Irish music while infusing it with a fresh and contemporary spirit is remarkable. Intense energy, beautiful harmony, and irresistible dance rhythms are responsible for their longevity, performing since their inception in Dublin in 1995 and two members contributing to Fellowship of the Rings award winning soundtrack. The Barleyshakes were a highlight when they performed their music at this year’s fire event for Woodford Folk Festival to 20,000 revellers.
