“…Dynamic melodies with hang-your-hat-on grooves…”
Modhan’s music is boldly infectious. With a sound born from a synthesis of jazz, folk, rock and funk, Modhan mould fresh grooves and sophisticated melodies while upholding a respect for their Scottish roots. The result is a contemporary sound, upbeat and refreshingly original.
"Lovely original music beautifully played and very well received by an appreciative Knockengorroch audience." – Liz Holmes, Festival Director, Knockengorroch World Ceilidh
Recently arrived from the USA, the duo has released two EPs: Together (2010) and Give It Away (2011). But nothing, not even a well-recorded song, can scratch the surface of the energy, honesty, and downright compatibility of this musical marriage. With equal parts acoustic guitar, keys, harmonies, and clever lyrics, The Weatherfolk’s music reaches the folk-lover, the blues-fiend, the gospel-clapper, and the easy-listener - all in one set. It’s a phenomenon that, after every show, leaves Ken & Casey asking the same question: why haven’t we been doing this together all along?
