They are the nicest and gentlest of people, and then they go on stage to become monster musicians- Rainforest World Music Festival, Malaysia
In a nutshell:
Celtic music with a modern groove / Get out of your seat vibe / Serious fun
Shooglenifty is a six-man band and a rip-roaringly good vocalist stirring up a fiery and infectious blend of Celtic traditional music and dance grooves known as "hypno-folkadelic ambient trad". Scotland’s Shooglenifty have a serious fan base and are famed for energised, contemporary roots material. Supremely dexterous and witty, the band’s lively, out-of-the-box performances mean they’re in constant demand around the world.
Skip right up to the cèilidh, fling your frustrations out the door and get ready to dance with these inventive, brilliant and slightly batty Scotsmen.
