Sportive Tricks - Celtic Music with a Kick
A Southern California Folk Band with a heavy Irish influence, Sportive Tricks takes great delight in giving traditional music a rousing twist. They also play many original tunes, both serious & silly. The band started as performers at the Renaissance Faire in 2009 but their music only hints at these beginnings. Tricks’ music leans towards bands like Great Big Sea and Gaelic Storm with influences ranging from The Chieftains to Flogging Molly. Inspired by the rich traditions of Irish, Scottish, & English folk, Cape Breton music, and sea shanties; Sportive Tricks combines traditional instruments with new arrangements, high energy, and a dash of humor for a foot tapping, hand clapping good time.
Sportive Tricks plays year round at pubs and concerts as often as they can.
