A project from Michael McGoldrick, Ian Fletcher and Andy Dinan - trad instruments within a myriad of musical styles.
Celtic jigs, reels, polkas and Breton gavottes fused with everything from AfroCuban Cross-Rhythms, Tabla-driven Funk, Flamenco, Samba, Afrobeat and HipHop to House, Reggae, Disco, Breakbeat and Jungle.
Over the years Michael McGoldrick has been a member of Toss The Feathers, Flook and Lunasa, and has toured and recorded with Afro Celt Sound System, Kate Rusby Band and RTE Concert Orchestra. He has also been a full time member of Capercaillie for over thirteen years. Mike recently played on Mark Knopfler's album Get Lucky, as well as with John Cale, Alan Stivell, Ornette Coleman and Youssou N'Dour. His solo projects have gained him worldwide acclaim, allowing him the freedom to explore a sound that is both inspiring and truly unique.
Ian Fletcher first worked alongside Mike as guitarist when they toured Germany with Toss The Feathers in 1994. Soon afterwards, Mike joined Ian on his Inner Space project, fusing Electronica, Dub, Techno and roots music from around the globe. Ian then delved deep into the world of Electronica and Techno, producing, DJing and doing live sets across Europe and Japan, with releases on many labels including Andrew Weatherall's Sabrettes imprint. At the same time he was producing film soundtracks ranging from Ambient to Breakbeat, and remixing artists such as Egyptian percussionist Hossam Ramzy, American HipHop singer Faith Evans, Tori Amos and Eat Static. Ian has also been collaborating with artists from Electro Funk legend Greg Wilson and Happy Mondays singer Julie E Gordon, to Colombia's HipHop group Systema Solar.
Andy Dinan is a master of the fiddle, having won the All-Ireland fiddle championships twice. He has more recently teamed up with Adrian Edmondson and Troy Donockley to become a member of the punk-folk group The Bad Shepherds.
