"Shantalla has to be rated the top traditional band on the Continent"
"Their name is equal to that of the greatest Irish bands and their talent is no longer to be proven."
"Shantalla are masters in contrast…one of the strengths of this band, knowing what to add or not add, and when to do that."
"Shantalla are some of the finest musicians in the traditional folk scene "
"Glancing at the strength and variety of the line-up you feel they can’t put a foot wrong and you’d be right… the band members are acutely aware of the niceties of dynamics and texture and know exactly how to maintain listener interest."

We offer an extended musical experience where we include Irish dancing in our concert performance followed by an Irish ceili dance evening afterwards. This can also include music or dancing workshops prior to the performance. During the ceili we teach some simple Irish ceili dances so you can learn, participate and have fun.
