About

Wraggle Taggle Ceilidh Band, superb talent from the North London traditional music scene. Irish, Scottish, American and English songs and tunes. All the musicians have been performing, touring and recording many years and two are award-winning performers.

Wraggle Taggle Ceilidh Band, outstanding talent from the North London traditional music scene

Starring the exceptionally talented Mick O'Connor (Tenor Banjo) and Eugene Teevan (Accordion), both all Ireland champion musicians, Wraggle Taggle perform throughout south east England and beyond. They go out as anything from a duo to a six-piece Irish band amplified or acoustic, with or without a caller.
Mick O'Connor won the all-Ireland tenor banjo championship in 1971 and two all-Ireland ceili band medals in 1986 and 1987. After many years touring and recording, he was invited to meet Irish President Mary McAleese at a special reception for traditional Irish musicians at her official residence, Áras an Uachtaráin, in Phoenix Park, Dublin in 2004. He received a Bardic Award at the All Ireland Fleadh music festival in Derry on Tues 13 Aug 2013 in recognition of his exceptional contribution to the promotion of Ireland's cultural traditions.
Eugene Teevan was steeped in traditional Irish music and his father Luton resident Jim Teevan was president of Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann 2004 - 2009. He was All-Ireland Champion in 1982 and 1986 and is now a qualified music teacher with Comhaltas. Over the years Eugene has been a regular performer at Irish music festivals, conventions and sessions as well as playing with several folk and Irish bands. Eugene has also performed in America and Canada.
Mick and Eugene are joined by Mick Bailey (Guitar/vocals) who founded the band in 1998 and other guest musicians who join the band in various line-ups. The band has many years success including performances for Mick Jagger, Robert Smith of The Cure and London Irish RFC. Celebrities they've performed for include: Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Frank Skinner, Clive Anderson, Ian Hislop Stephen Fry, Alan Davis, Dara O'Briain, Sanjeev Bhaskhar, Meera Syal, Aimi MacDonald, Bert Weedon, Jon Snow, and Imelda Staunton. Wraggle Taggle are regular visitors to Return to Camden Town Festival in London. TV appearences include "Feilte" on TG4 and the band appeared in the Film "66" with Helena Bonham Carter and Catherine Tate. Wraggle Taggle are Resident Musicians at well known Irish venue Clayton Crown Hotel, London.
