"Alotta Irish" are a traditional Irish music band for irish nights, ceilidhs, folk clubs and weddings. Based in the uk midlands we travel throughout the uk and overseas.
A really down to earth band packed full of Irish flavour!
Tommy is a folk singer and song collector who plays Bodhran and entertains with a huge stage presence. He has performed on the UK folk scene since the 1960's and his band "Alotta Irish" currently comprises a regular guitarist with vocals, an accomplished fiddle player (selected to suit each occasion), and a talented 4th member when required, selected to play concertina or banjo. A caller can be added if needed for a dance ceilidh.
"Alotta Irish" band members are all highly experienced singers and multi-instrumentalists and we have a top quality sound system.
