The Outlandish Knights blend tuneful melodies, epic solos and driving rhythms.
The vast majority of the Outlandish Knights music is original. Some of the tunes have been written to match specific ceilidh dances.
Many moons ago, Chris, Paul and Chis were born in Sheffield. For decades they made a tremendous din playing rock music in bands such as World Turtle, Three-Legged Cat, Strongheart Treebeard, and CRF. Less moons ago, sisters Cat and Ceri were born in Wales. In their earlier years they amused themselves by morris dancing, and playing folk music with bands Derwenna, Hiraeth, the Elastic Band, the Mountain Oyster Band, and Here Be Dragons.
Since forming in 2007 The Outlandish Knights have recorded a four track CD, made a video with Seven Second Films as part of the 2weeks2 make it film competition, played at Sidmouth Folk Week 2008 & been invited back for 2009, played for the Sheffield, Manchester & Mumpers (Derby) ceilidh series, as well as numerous private parties, weddings & concerts.
