“Ó Raghallaigh’s particular achievement is that he has stimulated a new move towards avant-garde experimentation in Irish traditional music, and demonstrated that it is possible to step entirely outside of the genre and back again – and that the process enriches both worlds.” – Toner Quinn, The Journal of Music.
Their eccentric, folklore informed stage shows have earned them a cult following in Ireland and abroad. They tread a narrow track between the beautiful, the dark and the ridiculous. Using teapots, saws, bicycles, milk jugs, bones, dollies and decapitated French hunting horns as instruments, their ethereal twin-edged blood harmonies form the distinct and unique creature that is Twin Headed Wolf.
