Drawing on their bottomless repertoire of frenetic jigs, polkas and reels for dancing (organised or otherwise) ranging through to a comprehensive selection of iconic singalong classics from the Irish tradition, together with a few more modern items, The Tatterjacks play all the old favourites.

“From a lively quartet to a full-on seven-piece band performing a terrific blend of traditional Celtic songs and tunes for a wild Irish knees-up!”

Guitar and banjo combine to give the songs their signature rhythmic drive and texture, while twin fiddles and flute interweave magically over the top, decorating and punctuating the melodic line. All this is rounded off with captivating vocals helping to add extra emotive impact to the sound.

If you would like a session or two of organised traditional dancing, the band can even include an experienced ‘ceilidh-caller’ in their number, who will come down onto the dancefloor in order to explain and demonstrate the steps and moves of traditional dances for experts and novices alike!

Whether it’s a compact quartet for a more intimate gathering, or a full-on seven-piece for a riotous celebration party, The Tatterjacks can field the appropriate line-up to suit absolutely any occasion. The band is well-organised and completely self-contained, providing all their own equipment, naturally including a top-quality PA system to balance and amplify their instruments which will create crystal-clear sound in venues of all sizes.

If it’s a great night of craic you’re after, then get your toes a-tapping and your feet a-stomping – enjoy a wild Irish knees-up with The Tatterjacks!

    What a night!! It was made so by the Tatterjacks. On September 7th, we were celebrating my son’s wedding which took place the month before. We wanted everyone to dance and be wild. The music was great, and included all sorts of singalong Irish songs. Our party was a mixture of young and old folk and everybody loved the band. Thank you, Tatterjacks, you were fab!

    The Tatterjacks played for my 60th birthday on 2nd June. From booking them to turning up on the night the communication was excellent. The Tatterjacks played a wide range of music which suited all age-groups and were brilliant performers. Everyone complimented them on their performance, which I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed. I would highly recommend them. My guests are still talking about it now.
