Live music has been integral to everything at Crofters over the years. Our MD Dónal first started playing as a child and here discusses with us how learning to play live changed his perception on playing music and what it means to him now
“Whether it has a touch of gypsy jazz here or a hint of blues there, the connecting thread of music at Crofters is that it recreates the atmosphere of the living room session or the homespun kitchen ceilidh, bringing strangers and friends together in shared enjoyment of music, accompanied by a generous share of good food, drink and fun.”
“From the early days of Fiddlers’, through its reinvention as Crofters in 2018 and right up to the latest incarnation of Crofters Arran in 2020 and the launch of Crofters Music online, the ethos of Crofters has been about authenticity. When people play in Crofters, they’re not putting on an act. Performers do what they do best, connecting up close and personally with audiences who deeply appreciate their artistry.”
Read today’s post to find out why we’re launching Crofters Music, and join Crofters Music to relive memories from over the years.
