Bagas Fellyon

Cornish Music and Nos Lowen

“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!”

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!
