The Irish Wakers formed in 2008 through a shared love of Irish tunes and songs , maritime songs, sea shanties and original works. Since then we have performed at a wide variety of concerts including Canada Day , Celtic Fests, Irish House-Vancouver Winter Olympics, sailing groups , folk clubs and traditional music festivals, and at special events in restaurants and pubs.
Our line-up includes : vocals, Irish bodhran, fiddle, guitar, Irish flute, and Uilleann pipes. We are available to perform at weddings, conventions, corporate events, festivals, pubs, wakes and parties .
What we do
We work with you to help design your perfect and memorable event with flexibility and professional integrity.
We have a vast amount of Irish tunes (jigs, reels, hornpipes, slip jigs, & waltzes ) and songs (Irish, Maritime, and Sea Shanties) which can be tailored to your event.
The wealth of tunes and songs added to the variety of instruments and energetic performances will engage your audience with dance, singing, and great craic !
