Two rip roaring dance bands for one show! Sheelanagig and Tantz! Truly two for joy...

Sheelanagig, are releasing there 5th album “Beard Town” recorded at the legendary real world studios and are hitting the road for a Uk tour, they have become something of a West Country institution for the past decade. A quintet with a well-stocked armoury of stringed instruments – banjo, fiddle, double bass etc – and a bagful of joint-jumping tunes, these boys sure know how to get a party started. Putting both stomp and skank into gypsy-flavoured tunes from the Balkans and beyond, it’s difficult – nay, impossible – for your limbs to remain stationary when you’re within earshot of them in full flight. Five showmen with a touch of the circus about them, the fact that they’ve often play with a knowing wink shouldn’t obscure their impeccable technique, virtuoso-standard ability that raises the roof in every place they play.

If a combination of Madness, Taraf de Haidouks and Hot Club jazz ticks your boxes, here’s your new favourite band. If you’ve seen them before then you know there will be mayhem, a lot of laughs and some great music.

‘A completely top night out.’ - Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2
