Hazaar

A raucous orkestra of klezmer mayhem,  Hazaar are a six piece band consisting of clarinet/sax, violin, flute, guitar, double bass and drums. 

Hazaar’s set is bursting with character from many genres that combine to create an authentic yet modern, on-the-edge approach to the klezmer traditions. They play unique arrangements fusing traditional eastern european tunes with elements of funk, dub, pop, rock and jazz.

A band guaranteed to bring laughter, song and dance!

The Dillyboys

The Dillyboys are an energetic folk band, bringing to life original and traditional songs and tunes, using banjo, accordion, guitar and carefully constructed harmonies.
