Rustique music

Rustique are a seven piece band playing Mandolin, Fiddle, Guitar, Accordion, Penny Whistle, Banjo etc. The definition of their music is 'Trans Atlantic'. The band take music from that 'Rust-bucket' that is the past, and in their words " kick it into relevency for today". Rustique have an expression for this 'Kick'n the Rust Bucket'. “The key criteria is that the audience must want to get up and dance, or at the least want to sing along with us”.

At the end of the day, we only play because we enjoy it. We hope this is infectious to those listening to us.
