BRIGADA PIRATA

We are the only pirate folk band in Italy, and one of the few in Europe!

Band Torino

What we offer

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

Set Up
We don't need anything to play: we can play totally acoustic, even among the people. But if you prefer, we can play amplified on stage. In this case the best solution is using shotgun microphones (2 is the minimum, best 3 or 4).
We are 4, so we need room for 4 people.
