The Stomptowners are a dynamic group featuring traditional Irish instrumentation, voice and foot percussion. Expect to hear an exciting blend of foot stomping jigs, reels and hornpipes interlaced with melodic, soulful Celtic songs, feisty sea shanties and a few good pub songs. Having percussive dance adds a key visual component which sets the act apart from other traditional Irish bands.
But The Stomptowners audience does not just sit there passively. Lead vocalist and local Liverpudlian, Andrea Wild, is only too pleased to lead a rabble rousing chorus and foot percussionist extraordinaire and Irish dance choreographer, Maldon Meehan, will have you up on the floor in no time.
The Stomptowners showcase a number of talented Irish musicians. Keeping a rotation dubbed “Irish Musician Du Jour” allows the band a unique approach to stage line-up while maintaining top-notch authentic musicianship.
Look out for multi-instrumentalist, Bob Soper, Uilleann Pipe player, Preston Howard, Irish Bouzouki wizz, Richie Rosencrans, renowned button accordion player, Felim Egan and Dublin-based banjo player, Graham Nolan --- these are a few of the fine players who perform periodically with this ensemble.
