Acoustic Northern European folk-rock with guts and melodies, not afraid of colouring a bit outside of the lines. That’s what you might say to describe Ceilí Moss in a few words. Perhaps it is Genevieve Williams from Widdershins who said it best: "They are not as punk as The Pogues, but they have a bit of that attitude and it gives them an edge many folk groups lack". Other recurring comparisons are Ambrozijn, Tri Yann, Jaune Toujours, Les Ogres de Barback, The Waterboys, the old Clannad...

If, like many, we started with (and still enjoy playing) the "Spanish drunken Danny rover of the County Down in the jar", 14 years of touring and recording have helped us create our own distinctive sound: Celtic, Flanders, Scandinavia, klezmer, medieval music, French chanson, Eastern Europe, ska, Balkanbeat, kleinkunst, singer-songwriter, blues, original material or (mistreated) traditionals, we take whatever we fancy, put it in our cauldron and whoever says it's not bloody "orthodox" or poxy "as it should be" gets a smack bottom...

Ceilí, I guess most of you know, is an Irish word for a party with traditional dance music. Moss was the nickname of Alain Mossiat, boss of the pub "L'Eblouissant", in Namur, where we first learned to deal with stage fright, back in the early 90s.
