At the top of the English Ceilidh scene for more than 20 years, The Ironmasters are a highly influential ceilidh band who play traditional music and original compositions in their own distinctive style.
Building upon a solid guitar, bass and drum rhythm you will dance to melodeon and saxophone melodies, spiced with harmonica, songs and innovative sax solos. The Ironmasters provide a varied sound that is great for dancing to, or listening to.
