Nantathren is hiring!

After 10 years in our band, Rebi has decided to emigrate and leave Nantathren behind. In addition, we have parted ways with our violinist Ivo due to his family- and our concert-planning.

Now we are looking for new members to replace their parts in our Irish & Scottish Folk Band.

We are currently Jan, 52, bass, and Martin, 46, guitar, vocals, banjo and accordion.

We are looking for: fiddle, whistle/flute, guitar, female vocals and if possible other instruments (except pipes ;-) ). The mentioned four things are very important to us to replace, because a female voice is beautiful and suitable, whistle and flute as well as fiddle are simply part of the Scottish and Irish music, and guitar is indispensable when Martin plays banjo or accordion.

We realize that this is a lot to ask for, and that's why we are looking for two or three new people for our band. Since we are two guys it would be nice to have women rather than men join us, in order to get a bit of balance in that respect.

We play relatively traditional folk at a good amateur level, usually a bit faster than others, but of course there is also room for nice, slow ballads.

If you like to play folk, are somewhere from the Winterthur area and can cover some of the above, would like to rehearse +/- once a week (Gaswerk Winterthur), and play a concert every now and then (5-12 per year), then please contact us.

You can listen to a few examples of how this band used to sound here:
