Selkie - "Putting the fun back into folk"

Contact: 01227 263466 / 07905 983474

Hailing from glorious Kent, Selkie are making waves (pun intended) on the folk scene, already establishing a loyal fan base due to their infectious, groove laden tunes and songs from Ireland, Scotland, England and Eastern Europe. Selkie play their own exciting fusion of World Roots Music, expertly uniting contemporary grooves with a solid understanding of traditional music to create their own fresh interpretations which are defiantly modern. 

Beachcombing beside today’s vast post-modern musical ocean, Selkie interweave lively Irish jigs and reels, jagged Bulgarian horos, enigmatic Swedish tunes, spine-tingling slow airs and powerfully expressive songs, interspersed with humour and sheer foot tapping energy. The result is a colourful mesh of dynamic musical interplay guaranteed to keep you ensnared from the first to the last note!   

SELKIE ARE:

Ramona Egle..........fiery fiddle... entrancing vocals...heart-stirring Irish low whistles

 

.........Chris Sadler.................driving acoustic guitar with subtle jazzy undertones...deep, earthy vocals

 

.................Dan Johnson.....................funky, groove-tastic dexterity on 4 and 5 string electric basses
