A collection of musicians who bring their various talents to the table resulting in a unique blend of traditional Irish/Canadian and European sounds. Everyone has at least three other projects on the go including The East Pointers, The Chieftains, The Stepcrew, Tara Nova and The Carlos Nunez Band but we’re all brought together through the session at Dora Keogh’s on a Thursday night.
In case you’re wondering it’s pronounced “Spree”.
Our alter ego is the “Cabbagetown Ceili Band”. We play wedding ceilis and dances across Southern Ontario and into upstate New York.
On any given night you’ll find a button accordion, fiddle, piano or guitar, bodhran, banjo and flute laying down the tunes.
