The Long Notes
With a distinctive folk, roots and celtic music sound, The Long Notes have been together for six years having met through the session scene of Camden Town, London.
They perform captivating arrangements of Irish, Scottish, French-Canadian, Galician, Quebecois and old-time tunes whilst also honing their writing skills by producing some stunning compositions for their new album, “In the Shadow of Stromboli” released in early 2012.
Representing Ireland, England and Scotland in their music and heritage, the line up includes Scottish fiddler Jamie Smith (Beneche, SBO Band), Irish born accordionist Colette O’Leary (Bumblebees), London-Irish banjo/mandolin virtuoso Brian Kelly (Shane McGowan and The Popes) and Dorset based guitarist and singer Alex Percy (Beltane).
Over the past 6 years, the band have forged an excellent reputation with appearances at numerous festivals including Celtic Connections, Glastonbury, Wimorne and Towersey and have toured in Italy, Austria and Germany.
