The Folk Dance Group “:Absolutely Legless” from Scotland took part in FOLKMOOT USA in 2010. They did a marvelous job interpreting the folklore of Ireland, which is their specialty. Their dancers were very precise and polished, and their musicians were outstanding. Moreover, they were exemplary guests and interchanged very well with members of nine other visiting groups, all housed together at the FOLKMOOT Friendship Center for a twelve day period.
We would recommend “Absolutely Legless” without hesitation to any Folk Dance Festival or other public event that may be interested in showcasing Irish folk dance and music.

Amazing, fantastic, superb, what a spectacle and that was only some of the comments made to us after the wedding. You made our wedding a day to remember…. I can’t thank you enough. I am going to write you an official thank you letter when I get 10 minutes to myself this week.

“For our St. Patrick’s Day celebrations this year, I feel extremely lucky to have had Absolutely Legless perform in our Bar & Bistro. The music, dancing and singing, not to mention the happy, energetic and friendly performers, was an outstanding success and customers and staff alike had a fantastic afternoon. Their performance exceeded expectations and they were…. Absolutely Brilliant! I’ve already booked them for next year and would recommend them to anyone for their musical event.”
