The Celtic, Folk and World music duo Four Shillings Short have been touring in the US and Ireland since 1997 performing a variety of traditional, original and contemporary music on over 20 instruments. The international duo “is nothing short of musical excellence encompassing an eclectic array of world music. They have carved out a musical identity all their own.” (River Stages, Dubuque IA)
We are thrilled to have them here at Filament!
In a single night, Four Shillings Short perform Traditional Irish and Scottish songs, tunes and airs, Indian Ragas, Folk Ballads, Old-Time songs, Medieval and Renaissance instrumentals and a cappella numbers as well as contemporary folk and original compositions. Their sound has been described as “wondrously diverse”, “truly refreshing” and “alternative neo-Celtic folk of the first order”.
