Brewed in Ireland and distilled in Australia the Barleyshakes are a Celtic band with world music influences who combine intense energy, beautiful harmony and driving dance rhythms in their live performances. Adored throughout Australia and beyond for their “bent” Irish sound, they are winners of the Queensland Music Award for World Music, and popular regulars at Woodford Folk Festival.


“The tradition of Irish music is long, deep and wide and remarkably brilliant. That the Barleyshakes manage to hold hands with this awesome history while simultaneously infusing it with a fresh and contemporary spirit is remarkable. Their latest album “Fringe Dwellers” is beautifully recorded, spacious and filled with scintillating musical conversations.”

“ Woodford Folk Festival favourite” Brian Nankervis , Rockwiz.
