A top ceilidh bands from the North West, Albireo play for parties, fund-raisers, weddings, dances and festivals. The band’s repertoire draws on the English, Irish, Scottish and American traditions, along with self-penned tunes and others from further afield.
Albireo is : Tom Kitching (fiddle, mandolin), Howard Jones (melodeon, Anglo concertina, hammered dulcimer, recorder, vocals), Steve Hodgskiss (piano, English concertina), Pete Crowther (bass guitar, keyboard) and Sean Bechhofer (guitar.)


Rhodri Davies  "I really enjoy working with Albireo … their versatility and energy mean that we can switch from Playford to contra to squares to ceilidh in one session."

Martyn Harvey "This is one consummately professional ceilidh band. They understand what dancers respond to and deliver it in buckets. Their tunes are played with gusto and whether they are fiddle driven foot stompers or concertina self penned subtle waltzes they deliver extremely danceable music all night. Great sound, a joyful stage presence and a bunch of really nice guys. What’s not to like?"
