The John Langan Band

The John Langan Band are a dynamic three piece offering a unique sound emerging from Celtic, Gypsy Swing, Roma and Flamenco influences, known for their high energy performances delivered with punk abandonment and virtuosic flare. Wrapping pan European traditional acoustic music with infectious grooves, epic, pounding, sing along, punch the air anthems with intricately arranged instrumentals. Challenging the limitations of what people might expect acoustic instruments to sound like, the use of bowed harmonics between fiddle and bass can be as menacing and eerie as it can be psychedelic and mesmerising. The front man Langan, whilst singing and driving the rhythm guitar, simultaneously co-ordinates the operating of a cajon and a tambourine with his feet bringing the swinging groove of the rhythm guitar together with his foot percussion resulting in an impressively tight band sound with a tempo that is free to go anywhere. Add scorching hot fiddle lines and a guy thumping the groove out a double bass and prepare to be taken on a wild ride!

Catch the band at one of their energetic live headlining shows or at a festival cranking up the masses into a frenzy, live dates can be found on their website
