Come and join in the fun!

The OM Irish band's unique music has and always will get a party, wedding and event going off with a bang.. On the top line is premier fiddle player Mac who plunges from Irish set dances into the jazz style of Stephan Grappelli with surprising ease. On guitar and vocals is John whose playing is a startling combination of cross rhythms/ jazz chords and counter melodies that produce completely original arrangements of the songs. With a background on the London music scene he brings many diverse influences to the band. In the rhythm section there is the wild and enigmatic Bodhran playing of James, complimented with his gravel voice and percussion. The band's caller will guide you through the dances.

St Luke's, The Quad Activities

Live Music

Taylor-Samuel

Taylor-Samuel are Bernie Samuel and Stewart Taylor, an acoustic pop duo who met in Exeter in 2000(ish) and formed the backbone of the now legendary 'Babysnakes'. Fresh from supporting Sound of the Sirens on their recent tour, Stewart and Bernie are back after a ten year break performing their own brand of acoustic pop for as long as they can get away with it!

 

 

Bernie Samuel

Bernie Samuel started his career playing in Holiday camps across the south of the country. After a brief spell performing to American troops during the first Gulf war, Bernie formed a number of bands, most recently the critically acclaimed Fabulous Thorvertones. Bernie is a regular on the Exeter busking scene and can regularly  be seen belting out Irish songs outside Boots the chemist.
