Celtarabia have played at Dogs in Space in both their ‘sound system’ and ‘unplugged’ formats a number of times over the years and have gone down a storm every time!
Unplugged, they breathe fresh air into traditional and ancient folk tunes, combining skilled musicianship on instruments rarely heard with strong vocals and a brilliant sense of humour, to produce a set that has the audience dancing right from the word go.
In their sound system format, they go one step further, taking a traditional folk/dance sound as a starting point and skilfully augmenting that with solid trance and dub beats and basslines, bleeps and sequencing to produce a truly unique ‘sound’ that gets even the most dyed in the wool technoheads up and dancing to what is essentially, dance music from a forgotten time!
‘Electro folk’, ‘medieval techno’, call them what you like but these skilled exponents of ancient instruments and music are genuinely a pleasure to work with and to behold.
Programmer of Dogs in Space,
Celtarabia Unplugged – The magical combination of hurdy gurdy and hammered dulcimer brought together by two inspired musicians Quentin & Amanda creates a spell-binding aural feast that provides the missing link between medieval and contemporary cutting edge dance music. Great audience rapport coupled with fine musicianship and music that has wide genre-crossing appeal gives this duo an appeal that will ensure they go from strength to strength as they build on the firm foundations they established many years back with the excellent full band Celtarabia.
