What a wonderful concert the Scallywags performed on Sunday night (CD Launch, May 15/16 - Cuckoo's Nest Folk Club). I loved it and I was totally in love with the guys and the music. The guys are so enthusiastic, so extremely talented, such great humor and such a great choice of music they offered. I was tearful several times but also thrilled with such beautiful music.

Wow, you guys nailed it last night! I was so proud to be there and to see the professional show you put on. The songs were varied, fun and tons of variety giving the listener something new to tune in to each offering.

Sea Fever is a great down to earth recording. Good for the heart and soul.

Scallywag has a lot of promise all built on excellent musicianship, strong vocals and a nice blend of old and new songs. In many ways you are like a young band as your potential is so strong. I hope that you take this nomination (Jack Richardson London Music Awards) as a springboard to achieving your group goals.

The Scallywag ensemble performs with infectious enthusiasm and delights the listener with their well crafted and beautifully played arrangements of Celtic songs and folk music. The Canadian Celtic Choir looks forward to many a future collaboration with this wonderful ensemble.

Scallywag’s wonderful multi-part harmonies and the engaging personalities of its members keep audiences thoroughly entertained. With a repertoire that includes original material, and songs from Celtic lands, England, South Africa, Canada, and the USA, audiences are treated to a musical potpourri delivered with skill and a zest for living.
Catch them live. You won’t regret it.

guys were awesome!!! You were channeling the great Pete Seger for
me - honey voice with a biting message. You brought such good energy
and experienced crowd management. It was a pleasure watching you unlock
the slightly stuffy crowd with your infectious enthusiasm.
We Sang a Little Louder last night - and hopefully will see a change for the Streets of London (a brilliant choice, by the way!!).
My deepest thanks
