Calan-ish is formed of 3 members of pioneering Welsh folk band 'Calan'. Formed in 2008 with the ambition of taking Welsh traditional music to a wider audience, Calan have since performed their native tunes and songs on some of the biggest stages in the UK and Europe. With a contemporary and lively approach they breathe new life into the old traditions through their sparkling melodies, foot tapping tunes and spirited and energetic performances of ancient music, as well as performing some original material. They combine fiddle, guitar, pipes and whistles, as well as the odd appearance from the pibgorn, as they blast their way through some of the old favourite reels, jigs and hornpipes with fast paced and uplifting arrangements before melting into some of the most beautiful and haunting slow airs.
