Traditional Irish Music

The Flying Toads are a multi-instrumental band playing inventive arrangements of Irish music. Their extensive repertoire ranges from lively jigs and reels to high-energy songs and haunting ballads.
The name "The Flying Toads" came about as a spoonerism of the Irish hornpipe "The Flowing Tide"!
Being a four piece band and each playing several instruments, the Toads focus on arrangements that explore the best blending of sounds and dynamics, as well as choosing tunes and songs that are exciting to listen to.
