Weaving intricate patterns around a core of fiddle, melodeon, flute and guitar, the House Band’s rich, complex music spans the Celtic nations and beyond.

Flute/bombarde/bodhrán player John Skelton helped piece together many of the band’s arrangements. Ged Foley (guitar/small pipes/vocals), honed his talents in the Battlefield Band, and currently plays with Patrick Street. Chris Parkinson’s accordion playing has been a driving force in the English dance scene, and his keyboard work is incomparable. Roger Wilson adds texture to the group with his soulful singing and deft fiddle-playing.
