Sheelanagig will be playing at The Beehive, in Honiton, at the beginning of October.

The band has become something of a West Country institution for the past decade.

A quintet with a well-stocked armoury of stringed instruments – guitar, fiddle, double bass – and a bagful of joint-jumping tunes, these boys sure know how to get a party started.

The band puts both groove and stomp into a selection of traditional and original European folk music dating from the medieval times to present day.

The fact that they’ve often played with a knowing wink shouldn’t obscure their impeccable technique, virtuoso-standard ability that raises the roof in every place they play.

Expect fun, a lot of laughs and some great music

The band will be playing at The Beehive, Dowell Street, Honiton, on Friday, October 6, at 7.30pm, with tickets costing £12.50 in advance, or £15 on the door.

Call the box officer on 01404 384050.
