Celtic and Ceilidh
Rollercoaster are often booked for events that require an element of Irish music – traditional and non-traditional. From the haunting sounds of Riverdance, to the gentle waltzing of Molly Malone… from the fiery vigor of Whiskey In The Jar, to the stirring, anthemic sounds of The Fields Of Athenry. Our fiddle players have grown up playing Celtic fiddle – it’s fair to say it’s in their blood. As a band, Rollercoaster cut their teeth in the Irish pubs across London. There’s nothing better than a solid reel or jig to bring a crowd together – and raise the roof at the end of the night.
The setlists vary for different events – even for the full on Irish events, we will blend in a few non traditional songs, though keep them fiddle driven… However, with most events, a wedding where half the guests are Irish, then we will blend the Irish songs in where appropriate. It gives everyone a chance to dance and enjoy the night!
