We play pirate folk, we are dressed like pirates, we act like pirates! Arrrr! Our music has its roots in the tradition of the sailors and pirates coming from the celtic islands: England, Ireland and Scotland. We play original (written by ourselves) and traditional sea shanties, pirates' songs and folk dances.
We are totally acoustic: voice/bodhran, fiddle/backing vocals, guitar/backing vocals, tin whistle/backing vocals. But we can play even on a stage with amplification.
We have been playing for festivals, taverns, squares, weddings, and all you can imagine!
Our site is: brigadapirata
Traditional (some examples):
Spanish Ladies / Randy Dandy oh
Bully in tha alley

Original (some examples):
Ma in gabbia mai
Dead ahead we all go
