Message for Ruth Archer,

Thanks for the things you said about our band further up the page. To settle debates raised by other people, we do write our own material but this is equally balanced with traditional ceilidh tunes all of which are played in our style. I do believe we are not the first band out there to put a twist on already traditional tunes and as a group we pride ourselves in being able to fuse influences from our different backgrounds to make the style (hopefully) fresh and interesting. Unfortunately though to answer an earlier query our ages range from 19 - 25 which eliminates the possibility of the award- Which is a big shame.

a good forum though
