Emerging out of the lively traditional music scene of Melbourne, Tolka encapsulates a sense of what it means to be playing traditional music in a contemporary context. In the last 3 years, Tolka have taken their unique blend of tunes and songs to audiences across Australia and the UK. Tolka recently recorded their second album which pays tribute to the band’s varied influences including traditional Irish music and the music of the wider Australian folk scene.

    Tolka will showcase with Kutcha Edwards and Rayella at Shebeen on Fri 13 November.
