Beltaine have been together for about three and a half years. They began as a four piece (fiddle, bass guitar, flute and mandolin) and later gained Dan, the drummer, lost the mandolin player and gained Julien, the piano accordionist!

Although all music is based on traditional music or music in a traditional style, Beltaine enjoy adding deeper, rock/funk rhythms to make the music both easy to dance to and more accessible to a wider audience.

Mellow & soulful to lively & energetic…
We have an eclectic repertoire, from which we select to suit the occasion. As well as playing jazz standards and blues, we draw on material by artists such as Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, Bill Withers, Janis Joplin, Dire Straits, Sting, Isaac Guillory, Tuck & Patti and Kirsty MacColl, which we reinterpret in our own way. Our individual interpretation of a range of material creates a unique acoustic, natural sound.

Cathy Stevens and Udo Dzierzanowski
played on:

3rd July 1999

Our aim is to perform music that can touch people from widely diverse backgrounds, in settings ranging from bars and community centres to art galleries and concert halls. The music is rich in variation of colour and texture, sometimes simple and lyrical, with a Celtic folk influence, sometimes intricately polyrhythmic and at other times more stridently rock oriented, though often with a touch of Bartok. We feel honoured to have been compared on occasions with the Kronos Quartet and the Penguin Café Orchestra. On the other hand, our sound and style are quite unique.

We have released two CDs: “The Starving Moon” in 1995, with Alessandro Bruno (Guitar) and “Lemon Crash” in 2000 with Alessandro Bruno and Markus Reuter (Touch Guitar).
