Hounds of the Sea Irish/Celtic/Folk Dance

High Energy Traditional Irish/Celtic/Folk Music which will have you up on your feet

This leading Welsh Band has been dubbed by the music press as the Welsh Steeleye Span crossed with the Peartbog Faeries. Perryn Butler on lead vocals, Mandolin, Bazouki, Percussion and Bodhran, Gaynor Colbourn on multi-keyboards, Mandolin and vocals, Holly Robinson on 4 string, Octave and 5 string fiddles, Mike Forewood on 4 string and 6 string bass, vocals, play the traditional songs and tunes in such a way you feel compelled to get up and dance. Below are videos of some recent festivals Hounds have played at.

Hounds of the Sea bring you Traditional Irish Songs, Scottish Songs, and all types of Celtic Songs and Instrumentals. Hounds of the Sea, who are appearing at The Queens Hall on Friday September 15th, are a leading Welsh Folk Band who play Traditional Folk Songs with vibrant energy. 

They have had an enormously successful 2017 playing Festivals and Concerts around the UK, and have been described as the Welsh Steeleye Span for their brilliant arrangements of Traditional Folk, and the Welsh Peatbog Faeries for their energy and exciting performances. Certainly not a Band to miss with their sensitivity and their high degree of musicianship, as well as the rhythm which makes everyone want to dance.They recently wowed a capacity audience at the Fishguard Folk Festival, who responded to Hounds with huge enthusiasm. The Hounds line up of multi-vocals, Guitars, Mandolins, Fiddles, keyboards, bass and drums gives a dynamic sound, which is the best of Folk Music with the energy of the Peatbog Faeries. If you want an evening of wonderful music, top class arrangements and traditional songs, the Hounds of the Sea will give you a fantastic evening to remember.

This exceptional band of top class musicians made a stop off on their way to festivals in North Wales, to play two sets of stunning arrangements of Traditional, and original Folk Music at the Festival in Llandovery on Saturday 5th August. The Festival of the Celts organisers were thrilled to have Hounds, an exciting band who normally play big Festivals and Concerts, perform for this local Welsh Festival which is held in several venues around the town. Hounds performed in the Castle Hotel Ballroom, thrilling the audience with a selection of songs from Wales, Ireland, England and Scotland, celebrating the Celt in us all. They have a unique and very full sound, with Multi-Vocals, Mandolin, Bazouki, Bodhran, Fiddles, Bass, Drums and multi-keyboards, and are all virtuoso musicians, so they can play with power and rhythm which makes the audience want to jump around, sing and dance, as well as great sensitivity and wonderful arrangements. A real high spot for me was when they played the haunting and poignant theme song from the TV Series, Outlander, which the audience loved, it was so moving. Hounds, from West Wales, can be seen next in concert at The Queens Hall Narberth on September 15th. This will be a real treat for lovers of Traditional Folk and Progressive Folk Music alike.
