"The Alpaca Jamboree - Geordie"

The Alpaca Jamboree are still very much in their infancy with no official recordings and only a few Youtube videos posted to date. However, by the quality of performance and the speed at which this duo have entered the gigging world, we can expect to see great things in the coming months. Don't be scared off by the looks these hipsters are not another bland neo-folk Mumford and Sons type, they carry on, in a beautiful manner, the traditional folk music of Scotland, Ireland, England and America using simple but affecting vocal harmonies. Watch this space. Go and see them live in Hotspot in Greystones on 23rd April, they will also probably be singing a few songs in the Stags Head with Johnny Moynihan on the 28th April, playing at the Hotspot again on 6th May and in the Bewley's Theatre in late May, date tbc. - Soundblob.com

Bio

The Alpaca Jamboree, Sam Doyle and Alex Calder, are a folk song singing duo, formed spontaneously at an open mic night in a small town in Ireland in April 2011. They sing old folk songs - handed down and over-heard and found. After only a handful of gigs they attracted praise from the national press and Irish music blogs alike. Jim Carroll of the Irish Times praised their "simple, sweet and fuss-free harmonising," and music blog Soundblob wrote "by the quality of performance and the speed at which this duo have entered the gigging world, we can expect to see great things in the coming months.” With a growing reputation as a live act and plans to record in the near future the best seems yet to come.
