aimed primarily at either performing Irish music for foreign
audiences, or providing the backing to céilí dances for locals,
the Café Céilí band have consistently pushed the boundaries
of their craft - drawing on songs and tunes from Scotland,
Australia and America, among other places.
Café Céilí's sound is based on a rythm section of guitar,
bass and piano (Ali & Eugene), merged with up to 4 'tune'
instruments, including fiddles, banjo, accordian, and whistle
(Máiréad, Jim and Brendán). Ali, Eugene, Jim and Breandán
all give vocal performances from time to time, with Breandán
specialising in Irish language songs.
