Celtic Folk Rock at its best!
Nelson's 'The Saints' are a high-energy 5 piece Celtic Folk Rock band playing original arrangements of Irish, Scottish and English music from The Pogues, The Dubliners, Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphy’s to traditional instrumental folk tunes - As well as the odd surprise rendition of classic 80’s pop!
Known to please audiences of all ages and tastes, The Saints have drawn an immediate and loyal following as a result of their all-out live performances and onstage energy and
dedication to highly-excited audiences which include: 2012 Brightwater Wine and Food Festival, Victory Square's Little Day Out, plus countless others - including two near-capacity shows at The Boathouse.
