The group features a range of traditional instruments, such as mandolin, banjo and accordion, as well as the necessaries for a cover band: guitar, bass and drums.
Mimicking the inventiveness of some of the bands they cover, the instrumentation is creative. Drums aren’t just the standard drum kit but include only the sounds necessary to produce the culturally-specific sounds of Italian and British folk music.
Most of their set aren’t straightforward note-for-note replicas but are rearrangements focusing on expanding the folk music element of the tune.
