High Energy Traditional Irish Music from the Heart of Lancashire

DTF are a four piece vocal and instrumental group based in Clitheroe, Lancashire. Firmly routed in the traditional music and songs of Ireland but also taking from Scotland, Lancashire and America, the band features Steven Johnston on Uilleann Pipes, Martin Baptie on Fiddle, Richard Moss on Guitar and Vocals and Daniel Burke on Tenor Banjo. Following the release of their debut album “Raise the Roof” in early 2014 and a number of barnstorming appearances including The BIG Whistle Festival, Fylde Folk Festival, Wirral Folk Festival and Cloudspotting Festival, the band continue to build a reputation for their mighty live performances.

The worldwide interest in Irish traditional music and song since the late 1960s shows no sign of abating: the north-west of England is particularly blessed with many centres of such musical excellence. Many of the practitioners never “saw the skies over Ireland”- not that that matters a damn! This Clitheroe based quartet sets the highest benchmark! Why don’t you find out for yourself?
