ABOUT THE BAND:
The Hounds of Cuchulain are a high-energy Celtic folk band from Victoria BC who perform a wide selection of Irish, Scottish, English, and original folk songs in the Celtic tradition: rowdy pub songs, tender ballads, spirited dance tunes, and ancient airs played with an authenticity and verve which bring the tradition to life for any occasion.

Combining powerful vocals, driving guitar, inventive harmonies on the fiddle, hard-hitting Irish banjo, sprightly leads on the whistle and mandolin, the powerful heartbeat of the bodhran, and the ancient ambience of the Irish lever harp, the Hounds' textured and energetic arrangements invite listeners to be swept up in the stories, to sing along and stamp their feet - true to the tradition of folk!

The group is led by seasoned performer and composer Wolf Edwards on lead vocal and guitar, and joined by Madeleine Townley on vocals, Irish harp, and tin whistle, Briana Kennedy on fiddle, Dexter Simpson on Irish tenor banjo, Ben Garrison on mandolin, and Jeff Feltmate on bodhran and second fiddle.

The Hounds of Cuchulain have reached their two year anniversary! Since their inception they have performed over 200 shows at major folk festivals, theaters, pubs, community events, private functions and more. The band has released two full length albums, and just finished recording and album of originals!
