Where traditional and contemporary folk meet – BTTB plays a fusion of world music styles. Whether they are taking a very traditional Celtic tune and applying cutting-edge contemporary string playing techniques and Afro-Cuban rhythms to accompany it, or trying out a new or experimental tune with modern composers writing for the fiddle, Bad to the Bow dances the line between digging into the roots of the instrument and branching out to explore the sounds of the future.
The group is under the musical direction of Gabriel Dubrueil.
