The Queen's Hall presents

Shooglenifty

1 November 2008 at 8:00pm

Groundbreaking Scottish mavericks Shooglenifty push the word ‘traditional’ to its limits with their unique blend of dance vibes and roots music. Genuinely genre defying, they have been described as everything from “acid croft” to “hypnofolkadelia”. Journalists may compete for words to describe, but all agree they are virtually impossible not to dance to and one of the best live bands of their genre around.

Last year Shooglenifty released their fifth album ‘Troots’. Described by The Guardian as “predictably classy” it displays their trademark scope, scale and wildness with fiddle and mandolin playing off each other across a bewildering array of grooves.

Shooglenifty’s line up is Angus Grant on fiddle, Luke Plumb on mandolin and banjo, Garry Finlayson on banjax, Malcolm Crosbie on guitar, Quee MacArthur on bass and James MacIntosh on drums and percussion.
