It is with regret the band have to announce that our drummer (Ian), has decided it is time to hang up his sticks and retire from the band. Ian has been an integral part of The Angels' Share for a number of years and during that time has contributed to our development, driving both the live performances and the tracks on The Gathering with his skill on the skins.
Formed in 1997, the Angels' Share perform what they describe as Celtic music that is guaranteed to get your hands clapping and your feet tapping. They have appeared at venues in Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Milton Keynes, Leicestershire, the South Coast as well as playing in the Lake District and Scotland including the Western Highlands and Islands. Their tour of Scotland also included Glasgow, Edinburgh and Falkirk. They have appeared on BBC Radio on numerous occasions, playing live and talking about their music.
Most recently they have had successful appearances at the Port Isaac Festival, Cornwall with The Fishermens' Friends and at The Merry Tom Festival, Brixworth.
With an assortment of musical backgrounds from classical and opera to Rock 'n Roll, they are sufficiently different.
