About this event:

Created by Dean Mortlock

Strode Theatre, Street

This explosive band combines unbelievable fiddle virtuosity from international star Adam Summerhayes; outrageous brilliance from world number one recorder genius, Piers Adams; incredibly high-ABV insanity from accordion master, Murray Grainger; positively feverish power from bass legend, Malcolm Creese; and dazzling bodhran playing from king of folk percussion, Cormac Byrne.

Supporting the release of their first CD Natural Selection, the Dodos take audiences on a joyously wild musical odyssey, encompassing melodies from the shores of the Hebrides to the mountains of Eastern Europe – a famous Irish melody might take a wild Klezmer twist, an ancient Scottish wedding song is recast in a mesmeric soundscape that evokes the lonely island from which it came with gypsy tunes and Eastern European rhythms spiralling faster and faster – it’s impossible not to dance!
