Moonshee is a band made up of 6 talented and unique artists from both the UK and Northern Ireland who together are putting English music into a global context. A dynamic & exotic live act who bring a different & original slant to the world of folk. Moonshee represent the point where the east meets the west, where the past meets the future. With a shared history that includes work with the likes of Paul Weller, Kumar Bose, Bombay Dub Orchestra, Noel Gallagher and Sir Paul McCartney, Moonshee “interweave their skills to create something magical and entirely natural.”(Phil Udell State Magazine www.state.ie)Their musical line-up features sitar, tablas, South American percussion, Celtic fiddle and harp plus vocals from the Indian, Irish and English folk tradition. A cultural melting pot, the band are true musical tourists.
