About Mapaluna

These guys are equally at home entertaining for a Hungarian gypsy wedding, busking at a Parisian boulevard café or performing in a Dublin ballad-lounge. Leaping melody from the agile fiddle of Richard Heacock combines with chunky rhythm and texture from Becky Price's accordion to create the Mapaluna sound.

“Add lively jigs and reels to your celebration event with Mapaluna!”

This infectious instrumental blend is all enhanced with a good dose of gypsy fire and more than a soupçon of evocative Parisian charm - it's a heart-warming mix! Traditional Irish, Scottish and English jigs and reels galore populate Mapaluna’s repertoire, not to mention the hornpipes, hopsteps, slipjigs, polkas and waltzes.

For a ceilidh or barndance, Mapaluna brings along a seasoned ‘caller’ who comes down onto the dancefloor to explain and demonstrate each dance. No previous ceilidh dancing experience is necessary - absolutely everyone can join in the fun.

The band travels fully-equipped with a top-of-the-range PA system, which will deliver superb sound-quality in venues of any type and size. So kick off your high heels and get ready for an excellent evening of traditional family entertainment!

Mapaluna brings you brilliant ceilidh party magic. Let the mayhem commence!
