Arquebus perform a mixture of traditional folk songs and tunes as well as self written songs performed in an upbeat contemporary style with the energy of a band that loves entertaining.
They cover jigs, reels and hornpipes from the british isles and beyond, all arranged in a toe tapping and upbeat manor and songs that span from the purely traditional through to numbers more reminiscent of the English folk revival.
There’s something for all folk fans to enjoy.
