Joska Hegedus Vincent and Luke Shaw first met at Bath University ten years ago, and have since developed their characteristic style: a high-energy mixture of intricate melodies from Joska’s fiddle and driving accompaniment from Luke’s DADGAD guitar.

Travelling extensively with a tent on his back, Joska has collated tunes from various fiddle styles, from the wild mountains of Donegal, to the rolling hills of the Clare to contemplative slow airs.  For 2024 they are overjoyed to welcome the awesome Catherine O’Leary on tenor banjo: after countless knee-slapping Irish sessions in Bristol pubs, they were thrilled when she agreed to join the band. As a trio, they will take you on an adventure with a unique sound, one that is distinctly Irishish!
