is a tall drink of folkrock divided over six shot glasses. A combination of single malt originals and blended traditionals, the cocktail they create will have you dizzy dancing in no time! Whether you are a habitual enthusiast or an occasional connaisseur, come fill your tumbler at their
performances on Saturday in the Pub at 20:15 and 22:00 CET!
Today we have a double treat for you! And it features a band that not only plays at
this coming weekend, no they also have a new album out very soon!
And we were lucky enough to be allowed to listening to it even before it is released. Who are we talking about? Of course it is
Shantalla is one of those bands that hardly needs an introduction. A staple of the “trad style” folk scene, it is virtually impossible that any folk lover not know about them. For that matter, it is also virtually impossible not to love them!
This Irish/Scottish combination plays both their own work as well as traditionals, but when they play these trads they certainly make them their own! Highly experienced musicians, each of them alone, but when they combine you can just feel the magic happen and the music come to life! Nowhere is this more evident than on their new album ‘From the East Unto the West’, where they combine their skills and styles to create a work of art! Amazing rhythm guitars and epic vocals (in every sense of the word). Haunting uilleann pipes and classical violin alternating with fierce fiddles. But it’s hard to put into a small text on social media, and so our own Cliff has written a beautiful and extensive review of the album, go read it at
Are you excited yet? Well, we are, so please join us in front of the stage at Zomerfolk, where Shantalla will play on the main stage on Sunday at 17:30 CET
When talking about

They have released ten studio albums, three compilation albums, two live albums and two EP’s. To list the guest artists that have appeared on these albums would make this post way too long for social media 😀 Suffice it to say, this band of magnificent musicians are very well equipped to rock everyone’s world!
They will be bringing their award winning and blood pumping Celtic Folk Punk to the crowds of
on the main stage on Saturday at 20:45 CET. Be sure to bring your energy levels up beforehand, as you will most likely be dancing like crazy to their sounds, because that is how good music like this is meant to be experienced!
We all know

will not disappoint!
