This is tradition standing on its head… doing cart wheels and pole vaulting over every barrier in sight‘ ~ The Irish Times

Famous the world over for inventing Techno Ceilidh, Acid Croft, and Hypnofolkadelia, Shooglenifty’s original and exciting sound has launched the band on an wonderful international career. A wild uptempo mix of trad talent and super funky phonics melding heritage and hedonism into one unbreakable whole.

Their fiery instrumental lyricism, pulsating with infectious rhythm and drive, creates a sound that is at once epic and inclusive, soulful and stirring; and commands a musical presence that takes the crowd by the hands and dances them on an exhilarating romp through unchartered and exciting new territory.
