8 and A Half
Bringing out the best sides of both 8# - 8 Sharp and A Half of Murphy's, the two bands join forces as 8 and A Half, for our Saturday Evening Ceilidh.
8# perform a range of Celtic music (both songs and tunes) from a broadly Irish repertoire although we also perform the odd Scottish, Welsh or Cape Breton tune. The band is mainly fiddles, accordion and guitar, although we also play the bodhrán, banjo and piano now and again. The music can be fast and exciting - great for stomping your feet - or slow and relaxing - great for chilling between the stomping!
A Half of Murphy's - Alex and Noeleen will be joining forces with 8# (Sharp) for the Saturday evening Ceilidh. Noeleen will be calling and Alex will be adding bass guitar to 8 Sharp's line up of Fiddles, Accordion and Guitar. For the one night they will be known as '8 and a Half'.
