Ceili Moss Bio:

We like to define ourselves as “acoustic folk-rock with a Celtic-Pan-European edge, that’s not afraid of coloring a bit outside of the lines”. The webzine Widdershins once wrote about us "they are not as punk as The Pogues, but they have a bit of that attitude, and it gives them an edge many folk groups lack", which we think is a good summary. Other recurring comparisons are Ambrozijn, The Chieftains, the old Clannad, Les Ogres de Barback and Jaune Toujours.

Like many folkbands, we started with (and still enjoy) the "Drunken Danny rover of the County Down in the jar", but we have built our own distinctive sound: Celtic, Flanders, Scandinavia, Balkan, Mitteleuropa, Klezmer, blues, medieval, singer-songwriter, French chanson, we take whatever we fancy, put it in our cauldron and whoever complains it's not bloody "orthodox" or poxy "as it should be" gets a smack bottom...

Our fourth album "la vie sent quoi?" is now available on our official website (http://www.ceilimoss.be), where you'll also find a lot more info about our gigs, releases and other news.


The new Ceili Moss album is out! posted: 09 Nov 2010 05:49 AM
The new Ceili Moss album is out! The fourth album by the Belgian acoustic folk-rock combo Ceilí Moss is finally available! "La vie sent quoi?" contains 12 pieces of mood, party or thinking for the rainy days, the sunny days and the inbetween days... True to their habit, the gentle Ceilí Moss with their wooden acoustic guitars will make most of the evil speed-punk-metal-indus bands sound like a bunch of retired accountants watching Derrick! Make your opinion and, who knows, spend a few bucks, on http://www.myspace.com/ceilmoss or on http://www.ceilimoss.be. So, fans of The Pogues, The Levellers, The Waterboys or Les Ogres de Barback, it's time you discover something new! ; )
