An Orkney Dance

The Wyre Band

An Orkney Dance

cd - £12.99

Formed over forty years ago, The Wyre Band have provided the music at dances and Ceilidh's in Rousay Wyre, and Egilsay. More recently the band started playing at venues throughout Orkney and beyond. Their driving and infectious style is completely unique and has led to them becoming one of the most sought after bands on the local dance scene. On being invited to play at the Keith Folk Festival, they became the star turn at the festival and were asked back year on year. This their first album clearly demonstrates their energetic and driving style.
