Imaginative acoustic instrumental band performing tunes with striking and colourful arrangements of jigs, schottishes, bourees, reels and traditional Irish music played on violins, bouzouki, accordion, kantele, and double bass from ex-Steeleye Span bassist Tim Harries.
This band has a long pedigree of individual involvement in the folk, acoustic and world music fields, both in performance and education. Their purely instrumental writing enables the listener to access the sheer beauty of the tunes they compose – pieces which draw upon many centuries of French, English, Irish and other European traditions and ‘art’ music.
At once sounding four hundred years old and yet immediate, the main strength of Finality Jack’s music is that constant journeying between the familiar sounding and the unexpected twists that they manage to contrive, without sounding contrived.
