An intriguing combination of Janine’s powerful voice, melodic guitars and powerhouse drums.

Blending soaring melodic flute, flying fiddle, spacey guitars and groovy beats. 2008 saw the band finish their self-produced first album which has been selling out at every gig and was named as ‘demo of the week’ on Celtic Music Radio as well as receiving countless plays here and abroad on internet stations. The band also had the pleasure of playing Small World, Eden, Cornbury, Hawkfest, Solfest and Weyfest and are playing to ever increasing audiences in their native northwest London.
