Sláinte

Slàinte is a Gaelic word meaning “health” or, more popularly, “cheers/skål”. The group Slàinte began life in Sweden in the early 1990’s as Billy and the Boys and the founder Billy Jones has worked since then in a changing constellation of excellent musicians. With himself and Jonas Liljeström on fiddle, the band is now basically a duo which can be augmented, depending on the venue, with banjo, guitar, mandolin, accordion, percussion and/or drums. Their latest in a series of records, “Roy on the Hill” features Billy’s own songs with this line-up, as well as duo pieces. The musical style is based on Celtic and American folk, roots music – played with a rocky beat and always with feeling. They have performed three times, with great success, at the prestigious Edinburgh Festival.
