•    Band Bio   


    The Flying Fish Sailors began their journeys in 1988 performing Celtic
    folk, renaissance music and sea songs, then progressed to original
    songs, humor, parody and folk rock. No strangers to diversity, in
    their early days the band often played in punk clubs, opening for such
    notables as The Dead Milkmen, Live Skull, and Shoulders. In recent
    times the Fish have opened shows for the legendary British folk
    rockers Steeleye Span, Brother, Tommy Makem, and Altan. The bands’
    influences range from The Chieftains to Devo.

    Performing acoustic folk music and original comedy, the Flying Fish
    Sailors bring together elements from diverse musical styles to create
    a sound uniquely their own. Their shows combine modern and antique
    instrumentation, and musical styles from many times and cultures: A
    place where humorous original songs, Renaissance tunes, American and
    Celtic folk songs converge with classic rock themes, the blues, and
    even rap and heavy metal influences.
