SCOTTISH folk stars Shooglenifty are bringing their fiery and infectious blend of Celtic traditional music and dance grooves to Salisbury Arts Centre next weekend.
The band are internationally regarded for their high energy style, which band members describe as “hypno-folk ambient trad”.
This style has its roots in late 80s Edinburgh and has evolved after years of playing at festivals around the world. International influences are revealed in the band’s instrumental line-up: mandolin, banjo and bouzouki share a stage with the more familiar fiddle and guitars, all wielded with extreme precision and technical daring.
The current line-up have been playing together for more than ten years and have an unforgettable stage presence, delivering a danceable evening of dangerously catchy music and a brilliant sense of fun – only to be expected from a band whose albums are littered with such quirky song titles as Would you Like an Olive, Wes?.
* Shooglenifty perform at Salisbury Arts Centre on Sunday, June 22 at 8pm.
Tickets are available from salisburyartscentre.co.uk or on 01722 321744.
