Wraggle Taggle was founded in
1996 by Mick Bailey and grew out of the vibrant North
London Traditional Music scene. Mick carefully selected the band
members for outstanding ability on their individual
instruments and as a bunch of good friends.
They have built a reputation as a highly entertaining, professional and talented ceilidh band performing at parties, festivals, pubs, clubs, concerts and functions throughout the South East and further a-field. Wraggle Taggle play traditional Irish, Scottish, English and American songs and tunes with innovation, flair and vitality.
Musical influences include; The Chieftains; Planxty; The Bothy Band; Altan; Ally Bain; Boys of the Lough; Jimmy Shand; The Pogues; Van Morrison; The Dubliners and Christy Moore and the many talented musical friends they have met over the years. They go out as anything from a duo to a six-piece, amplified or acoustic, with or without a caller. A suitably talented deputy will be substituted if any of the main band members aren't available.
