Atlantic Bridge



  • Hampshire music - quartets - harps - bands ~wedding-service~ UK

    Why the name? Both the music and the musicians come from the two sides of the Atlantic, and as well as playing the traditional tunes and songs of Ireland and Scotland, Atlantic Bridge has a vast store of Canadian Celtic tunes, which have their own style and energy. Their music remains true to its roots, preserving the emotions inherent in the tradition tunes, but it also combines the excitement of an up-beat accompaniment with an informal and good-humoured performance. Atlantic Bridge toured England and Wales supporting Cape Breton fiddler, Jerry Holland, on his 1999 concert tour, and have many years of experience playing at arts centres, theatres and concert halls, festivals and open-air events, clubs, pubs, parties and weddings.
