“Superb new instrumental quintet … visceral live performances … beautiful laments that should keep them off the extinction list ... cinematically effective - you can all but see in your mind’s eye an unrolling scroll of epic widescreen imagery ... Grainger’s accordion with Summerhayes’s fiddle are especially beautiful.” Songlines

“Jaw-dropping instrumental skills...unsurpassed individual virtuosity...the musical precision and discipline are breathtaking...nothing short of phenomenal...hats off to the Dodo’s collective genius” The Morning Star

“Gloriously skilled, inventive and fun ... a stunning sound ... sheer energy .... tightness at a million miles an hour” folking.com

A trailblazing, joyously wild musical odyssey, encompassing melodies from the shores of the Hebrides to the mountains of Eastern-Europe.

 
Diabolical fiddle virtuosity from international star Adam Summerhayes, outrageous brilliance from world number one recorder genius Piers Adams, horrifyingly high-ABV insanity from accordion master Murray Grainger, positively evil power from bass legend Malcolm Creese and dazzling bodhran playing from multi award-winning king of folk percussion, Cormac Byrne.
