The Band

Sometimes sweet and soothing, many times haunting and stomping, Tobermore’s folktunes and songs have often been said to push listeners straight into rapture 😛

While Gerard’s tasteful chording on the guitar gives every note a certain bittersweet edge and Marinus supports the emotion with warm Bass sounds, Herco, Rolf, Vincent and Angus solidly carry the melodies on Flutes, Whistles, Fiddle, Mandoline, Uilleann Pipes, Diatonic accordion, Double Bass and of course the traditional Irish Bodhrán. Excellent singers all, they lift any song to soaring heights with intense multi-vocal harmonies.

Energizing, lyrical and abundant Irish folk tunes and heartfelt old time country songs for you to enjoy even when the gig’s last echo has long since faded.

So that was the official blurb and it’s all true, every flowery word of it…

That said, really, all there is to say is: It’s just plain old good Craic! Come and listen sometime!


We play traditional Irish and American folk music as you would hear it in any pub in Ireland. Many songs and haunting instrumental melodies that force you to at least tap your feet along with the rythm. Listen to some tracks below!
