“A gloriously chaotic groove juggernaut! Bagas Fellyon (Cornish for ‘The Band of Fools’) experiment with and innovate within the growing Nos Lowen style of Cornish traditional Music.”
Bagas Fellyon is a collective of musicians brought together by the fiddle player Neil McMahon. Initially as a project to promote the album “Hitching Ships” by Cornish studio-based duo Fools Rock. Following this sell-out gig, the band soon took on a life of its own with its boisterous groove centric approach to Cornish Nos Lowen music.
“Bagas Fellyon – Cornwall’s fastest rising Nos Lowen Band!”
St. Piran Fest
The Nos Lowen (Cornish = ‘Happy Night’) is something between a ceilidh and the Breton Fest Noz. The dances are simple enough that they can be picked up by following along with a few strategically placed dance leaders among the crowd. This eliminates the need for a caller and leads to an evening that can flow more continuously than a usual ceilidh.
Bagas Fellyon boasts a line-up of highly skilled and versatile Cornish musicians and can adapt to suit any venue or event. Whether you’re looking for a trio to or a full 8-piece Nos Lowen band to get you venue rocking, look no further!
