About Triskel

Full Description: 

Since their formation in 2006, Triskel have gained a reputation as one of the leading Celtic bands in the south of England, with a vast repertoire of tunes and songs all with original instrumental arrangements.

The group is led by Mal Simms, who plays guitar, bodhran, whistle and sings. The other members of the five-piece line-up (as on their demo tracks and in the photo) are Tim (fiddle/mandolin), Alex (fiddle/guitar/melodeon), Sarah (flute/whistle/guitar) and Val (concertina, bouzouki, whistle and vocals).

For dancing at weddings and parties, our recommended line-up is four musicians with one of them also acting as the band’s caller, who is skilled at guiding even the least experienced of your guests through English, Scottish and Irish dances. Unless otherwise stated we will quote for this four-piece line-up.

The band’s repertoire ranges from wild Irish jigs to plaintive Scottish airs, from rousing choruses and shanties to moving ballads and popular English folk tunes. They have played at numerous weddings and private functions, at venues ranging from village halls to country house hotels. Our CD also features some of the band’s non-dancing tunes – very welcome when your guests need a well-earned rest!

The band normally play for about two hours. Triskel provides its own full PA system and if requested can also play CDs through their PA system during breaks.
