Welcome to Samphire Music Home

musicians t 

Samphire is the only 'one man band with 2 people' - or a 'duo with 3 people'

We play a multitude of instruments such as Guitar, melodeon, recorders, mandolin, bass, harmonica, flutes, saxophone, violin, keybords ...

We sometimes have guest musicians playing with us such as keyboard, volins and drummers, so are able to perform as a three/four/five piece band for entertainment at weddings, parties or for accompaniment to dancing.

At many of our gigs we perform as a trio with a percussionist/drummer, we still also perform as a Duo
Influences include a multitude of genres such as traditional Folk, Folk Rock, Pop, Jazz, Blues, Rock and World Music, Irish, Latin, Greek and Eastern European through to REM, Crowded House, Van Morrison, Neil Young, Rolling Stones and many others, 300+ eclectic tunes

We sometimes have guest musicians playing with us such as keyboard, volins and drummers, so are able to perform as a three/four/five piece band for entertainment at weddings, parties or for accompaniment to dancing.
We have played many times as a Ceilidh band under the name 'Straight Furrow' as Susan is a 'caller' able to lead the dancing.

We also perform annually for special occasions our performances include Valentine's, St Patrick's and Burn's Nights!

Thank you to everyone over the years who has enjoyed spending an evening with us. Whether it was on your special day or just dropping in to listen to us in one of the many music venues we play at.
